Updated on May 30, 2014

Role of the Management

Managers in any organization are very important for the purpose of employee motivation, engagement, and creating a workplace that is productive. Additionally, managers are an essential factor in determining employee retention or high turnover. Therefore, management development is a significant factor which if used effectively could be offer positive outcome. Management development also offers an opportunity to teaching the culture of a particular organization. The regulations, norms and expectations of an organization are unique features of a leader. The emphasis in management development practices is to make it easy for managers perform their jobs more effectively (Knights and Roberts 1982, 49). In organizational development, the efficiency of management is identified as one of a determinant for the success of any organization. Hence, investing in management development could have a positive value for organizational development.

Management development is the general concept explaining the different ways by which organizations assist their workers in developing their personal as well as organizational experience, either as leaders in management position or with an anticipated management job. Establishing the skills and experience of managers through the options in the management development is essential in effective functioning of any organization. This owes to the fact that the manager or leader could be very influential to the organization though the oversight role provided by him in the whole organization (Sytse and Hein, 2012. 115).

In most cases, organisational management is mandated with recognizing and managing the perceptions and behaviour of groups as well as individuals. In particular, they are supposed to look at how workers are motivated in their work and belonging in the firm, how to make these individuals involve themselves in teamwork effectively. Additionally, the management is responsible in getting these people to undertake their jobs in an effective manner, and encouraging them to be creative and innovative. The individual perceptions and behaviour are brought to the management’s attention so that they recognize various issues, choose means of correcting them, and changing their behaviour so that individual performance and consequently organizations effectiveness are enhanced.

According to Taylor, (2010) organization managers must find solutions with regard to conflicting objectives and values, between the motive for profit and social gain, between discipline and freedom and between authority and industrial democracy. They also have to find solutions between cooperation and bargaining, and the conflicting interests of the group, community, or individuals of that organization.
