Participative management :
Participative management is a form of management considered as the most democratic; the employees are not just asked to fulfill certain tasks, but also to participate in decision making. the leader, through, brainstorming sessions, or through other ways, asks for the opinion of the other employees before making a decision, thus, having alarger panel of ideas, and opinions, which might lead to an unexpected ideas, that might boost the activity (this idea is based on the basic principles of brainstorming, the larger the group, the more ideas we get, the more efficient it is), added to that the fact that the employees feel themselves as part of the company.
Crisis management, is a form of public relations,( typeof external corporate communication) which consists ofsaving the companies brand image in a crisis time, this job is usually done by spin doctors, whose job is merely to distort the facts, therefore making the public opinion unable to take one position, or to completely wrap up the case, and make the public believe that either the company’s not responsible, or it was out of their hands.
Mostcommon example is the Nike case, and child labor factories in Asia, even though news were spreading like wild fire, they were able to contain the crisis, and convincing the public opinion of the opposite. Actually Nike, when standing up again, has become even stronger
Conflict management, is also a type of internal corporate communication, it consists in managing internalconflicts between employees, this way solving tensions between them, thus increasing considerably their productivity ( a good atmosphere automatically leads to a better performance…)
Human resources management:
In any organization, the human factor is the most important factor , therefore, it is extremely important to be able not only to deal with each and every aspect of the every day,personelrelative problems, but to be able to know who to hire, who fits best to a certain job, who deserves a promotion, and who doesn’t, thus, making the HR management a vital entity in every organization, whom without, the organization will be chaotic and anarchic.
Risk management consists in trying to avoid high risk processes, either in terms of loss, (investments…), orinjuries (during the production processes). Being able to control risk enables the company to have a clearer vision on what to do, and what to avoid, and added to this it enables it to be more efficient, by having the best processes, not only in terms of productivity, but also, in terms of employee efficiency (during a process, if an employee gets injured, other employees will automatically try toavoid the machine, or accomplish the task as fast as possible to get rid of it => bad quality products).
It is a process in which, we try to review all factors involved in a certain action (production…), controlling quality doesn’t mean that we have to have zero problem, or no bad quality products, it means that the process must fit to certain standards. Having zero problemswill cost tremendous amounts of money to the company, therefore making it less competitive. What should be done is to make sure that the process works in an optimized way, and produces good quality products.
Time resources is the amount of time available to fulfill certain tasks : the best way to define it is by taking an example : to produce a table, we need wood, nails… and 4hours of labor, we have to produce 300 table per month, in order to have maximum benefit, which means that we need 1200h of work.
The machines that we have only allow us to work 3h daily=> we can only work 900h per month; this means that we cannot achieve our goal. What can we do then? We have to try to reduce the time spent on one table, and that can be done in many ways, either using new...
