Management Styles


Management refers to the individuals who set the strategy of the organization and coordinate the efforts of employees (or volunteers, in the case of some voluntary organizations) to accomplish objectives by using available human, financial and other resources efficiently and effectively. Resourcing encompasses the deployment and manipulation of human resources, financial resources, technological resources, natural resources and other resources. Development
Concepts Management is the process of planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating and controlling the activities of business enterprises. It is also described as the technique of leadership, decision making and a mean of coordinating.
Intelligent Management is the process of managing and organizing the collection of intelligence from various sources.
Scientific Management analyzes and synthesizes workflows to improve economic efficiency, especially labor productivity.
Adaptive Management is a structured, iterative process of robust decision making in the face of uncertainty, with an aim to reducing uncertainty over time via system monitoring. In this way, decision making simultaneously meets one or more resource management objectives and, either passively or actively, accrues information needed to improve future management. Adaptive management is a tool which should be used not only to change a system, but also to learn about the system (Holling 1978). Because adaptive management is based on a learning process, it improves long-run management outcomes. The challenge in using the adaptive management approach lies in finding the correct balance between gaining knowledge to improve management in the future and achieving the best short-term outcome based on current knowledge.
Strategic Management involves the formulation and implementation of the major goals and initiatives taken by a company's top management on behalf of owners, based on consideration of resources and an assessment of the internal and external environments in which the organization competes. It involves specifying the organization's objectives, developing policies and plans designed to achieve these objectives, and then allocating resources to implement the plans.
Self-Manage
Micromanagement is a management style whereby a manager closely observes or controls the work of subordinates or employees. Micromanagement generally has a negative connotation.
Senior Management is a team of individuals at the highest level of management of an organization who have the day-to-day tasks of managing that organization.
Decentralization is the process of redistributing or dispersing functions, powers, people or things away from a central location or authority,
Collaboration
Management System is the framework of policies, processes and procedures used by an organization to ensure that it can fulfill all the tasks required to achieve its objectives.
Content Management System
Management Basics
Business Model is an "abstract representation of an organization, be it conceptual, textual, and/or graphical, of all core interrelated architectural, co-operational, and financial arrangements designed and developed by an organization presently and in the future, as well as all core products and/or services the organization offers, or will offer, based on these arrangements that are needed to achieve its strategic goals and objective.

Risk Management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities. Risk management’s objective is to assure uncertainty does not deflect the endeavor from the business goals. PDF
Precautionary Principle states that if an action or policy has a suspected risk of causing harm to the public, or to the environment, in the absence of scientific consensus (that the action or policy is not harmful), the burden of proof that it is not harmful falls on those taking an action that may or may not be a risk. Research
Risk Assessment is the determination of quantitative or qualitative estimate of risk related to a well-defined situation and a recognized threat (also called hazard) Quantitative risk assessment requires calculations of two components of risk (R): the magnitude of the potential loss (L), and the probability (p) that the loss will occur. An acceptable risk is a risk that is understood and tolerated usually because the cost or difficulty of implementing an effective countermeasure for the associated vulnerability exceeds the expectation of loss. "Health risk assessment" includes variations, such as risk as the type and severity of response, with or without a probabilistic context.
Risk Perception is the subjective judgement that people make about the characteristics and severity of a Risk. The phrase is most commonly used in reference to natural hazards and threats to the environment or health, such as nuclear power. Several theories have been proposed to explain why different people make different estimates of the dangerousness of risks.

Flat Organization has an organizational structure with few or no levels of middle management between staff and executives. An organization's structure refers to the nature of the distribution of the units and positions within it, also to the nature of the relationships among those units and positions. Tall and flat organizations differ based on how many levels of management are present in the organization, and how much control managers are endowed with.

Employees - Workforce


Employee contributes labor and expertise to an endeavor of an employer or of a person conducting a business or undertaking and is usually hired to perform specific duties which are packaged into a job. An employee is a person who is hired to provide services to a company on a regular basis in exchange for compensation.
Employment is a relationship between two parties, usually based on a contract where work is paid.
Recruitment refers to the overall process of attracting, selecting and appointing suitable candidates for jobs (either permanent or temporary) within an organization.Employees

Background Checks are sometimes Flawed and Unreliable.
Background checks don’t always reveal the truth about people. Background checks are not always accurate with erroneous or questionable information. Background checks are not always complete and have missing information because not all applicable government agencies and companies have reported complete information on the individual in question. Background checks are not always look at or considered. Background checks are not always used correctly or interpreted correctly, unqualified people can easily make Unfair Judgments when looking at background checks.

Projects - Process


Project Management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.
Program Management is the process of managing several related projects, often with the intention of improving an organization's performance. In practice and in its aims it is often closely related to systems engineering, industrial engineering, change management, and business transformation.

The Project Management Process focuses on taking the facts and happenings of a particular Problem or Project and disseminating this information to all relevant parties. These methods of information dissemination can come in means including regularly scheduled Conferences and or Meetings, regularly scheduled Conference Calls in which some or all members of the project team participate, informal written Communications such as periodic updates via email and of other short form, less formal means of communications, as well as formal reports that may or may not have been requisite to the completion of the project. Information distribution is essential to assuring that everyone is fully aware of the progress throughout the project as it helps to assure no surprises arise at the time that deliverables are expected to be final.

Documentation - Record Keeping


Documentation is a set of documents provided on paper, or online, or on digital or analog media, such as audio tape or CDs. Examples are user guides, white papers, on-line help, quick-reference guides. It is becoming less common to see paper (hard-copy) documentation. Documentation is distributed via websites, software products, and other on-line applications.
Records Management is the professional practice of managing the records of an organization throughout their life cycle, from the time they are created to their eventual disposal. This includes identifying, classifying, storing, securing, retrieving, tracking and destroying or permanently preserving records.
Document Management System is a system (based on computer programs in the case of the management of digital documents) used to track, manage and store documents and reduce paper. Most are capable of keeping a record of the various versions created and modified by different users (history tracking). The term has some overlap with the concepts of content management systems. It is often viewed as a component of enterprise content management (ECM) systems and related to digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems and records management systems.
Document is a written, drawn, presented or recorded representation of thoughts.
Business Record is a document (hard copy or digital) that records a business dealing. Business records include meeting minutes, memoranda, employment contracts, and accounting source documents.
Public Records are documents or pieces of information that are not considered confidential and generally pertain to the conduct of government.
Document Retrieval is defined as the matching of some stated user query against a set of free-text records. These records could be any type of mainly unstructured text, such as newspaper articles, real estate records or paragraphs in a manual. User queries can range from multi-sentence full descriptions of an information need to a few words.
Documentation Science is the study of the recording and retrieval of information. Documentation science gradually developed into the broader field of information science.
Document Classification is a problem in library science, information science and computer science. The task is to assign a document to one or more classes or categories. This may be done "manually" (or "intellectually") or algorithmically. The intellectual classification of documents has mostly been the province of library science, while the algorithmic classification of documents is mainly in information science and computer science. The problems are overlapping, however, and there is therefore interdisciplinary research on document classification. The documents to be classified may be texts, images, music, etc. Each kind of document possesses its special classification problems. When not otherwise specified, text classification is implied.
Documents may be classified according to their subjects or according to other attributes (such as document type, author, printing year etc.). In the rest of this article only subject classification is considered. There are two main philosophies of subject classification of documents: the content-based approach and the request-based approach.
Legal Instrument is a legal term of art that is used for any formally executed written document that can be formally attributed to its author, records and formally expresses a legally enforceable act, process, or contractual duty, obligation, or right, and therefore evidences that act, process, or agreement. Examples include a certificate, deed, bond, contract, will, legislative act, notarial act, court writ or process, or any law passed by a competent legislative body in municipal (domestic) or international law. Many legal instruments were written under seal by affixing a wax or paper seal to the document in evidence of its legal execution and authenticity (which often removes the need for consideration in contract law); however, today many jurisdictions have done away with the requirement of documents being under seal in order to give them legal effect. Legal Value is the usefulness of a document or record as a legal proof of authority or business transaction, enforceable rights or obligations, or as the basis for a legal action.

Quality Control - Safety


Quality Assurance is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in manufactured products and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers.
Quality Management ensures that an organization, product or service is consistent. It has four main components: quality planning, quality assurance, quality control and quality improvement. Quality management is focused not only on product and service quality, but also on the means to achieve it. Quality management, therefore, uses quality assurance and control of processes as well as products to achieve more consistent quality.

Productive


Productivity is an average measure of the efficiency of production. It can be expressed as the ratio of output to inputs used in the production process, i.e. output per unit of input. When all outputs and inputs are included in the productivity measure it is called total productivity. Productivity is increased by lowering the amount of labor, capital, energy or materials that go into producing economic goods. PDF 

Production is a process of combining various material inputs and immaterial inputs (plans, know-how) in order to make something for consumption (the output). It is the act of creating output, a good or service which has value and contributes to the utility of individuals. It is the creation of value or wealth by producing goods and services.

Production Function relates physical output of a production process to physical inputs or factors of production. Industry

Mode of Production are productive forces, which include human labour power and means of production (e.g. tools, equipment, buildings, technologies, knowledge, materials, and improved land).
Productivity Improving Technologies
Performance
Development

Mass Production is the production of large amounts of standardized products, including and especially on assembly lines, such as household appliances and automobiles. Together with job production and batch production, it is one of the three main production methods. ("flow production" or "continuous production"). Mass production's advantages include simplification of the production process, efficiency in the production process and consistency in the finished products. Mass production frequently outpaces the slow, labor-intensive processes of pre-industrial craftsmen and artisans.
Capacity Planning is the process of determining the production capacity needed by an organization to meet changing demands for its products. In the context of capacity planning, design capacity is the maximum amount of work that an organization is capable of completing in a given period. Effective capacity is the maximum amount of work that an organization is capable of completing in a given period due to constraints such as quality problems, delays, material handling, etc.
Capacity Utilization is the extent to which an enterprise or a nation actually uses its installed productive capacity, which is is the maximum possible output of an economy.
Economies of Scale are the cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to size, output, or scale of operation, with cost per unit of output generally decreasing with increasing scale as fixed costs are spread out over more units of output. Often operational efficiency is also greater with increasing scale, leading to lower variable cost as well.

Job Production involves producing custom work, such as a one-off product for a specific customer or a small batch of work in
quantities usually less than those of mass-market products.

Batch Production is a technique used in manufacturing, in which the object in question is created stage by stage over a series of
workstations, and different batches of products are made.

Continuous Production is a flow production method used to manufacture, produce, or process materials without interruption. Continuous production is called a continuous process or a continuous flow process because the materials, either dry bulk or
fluids that are being processed are continuously in motion, undergoing chemical reactions or subject to mechanical or heat treatment. Continuous processing is contrasted with batch production.

Assembly Line is a manufacturing process (most of the time called a progressive assembly) in which parts (usually interchangeable parts) are added as the semi-finished assembly moves from workstation to workstation where the parts are added in sequence until the final assembly is produced. By mechanically moving the parts to the assembly work and moving the semi-finished assembly from work station to work station, a finished product can be assembled faster and with less labor than by having workers carry parts to a stationary piece for assembly.

Factory is a manufacturing plant or industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another. Factories arose with the introduction of machinery during the Industrial Revolution when the capital and space requirements became too great for cottage industry or workshops. Early factories that contained small amounts of machinery, such as one or two spinning mules, and fewer than a dozen workers have been called "glorified workshops". Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse-like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities.

Manufacturing is the organized action of making of goods and services for sale.  Is the value added production of merchandise for use or sale using labour and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation.

Industry is the production of goods or related services within an economy. The organized action of making of goods and services for sale. The people or companies engaged in a particular kind of commercial enterprise. Persevering determination to perform a task.  Industrial Revolution (wiki)

Industrial Engineering is the optimization of complex processes, systems or organizations. Industrial engineers work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, man-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value. they figure out how to do things better, they engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity.
Automation Technology

Computer-Integrated Manufacturing is the manufacturing approach of using computers to control the entire production process. This integration allows individual processes to exchange information with each other and initiate actions. Although
manufacturing can be faster and less error-prone by the integration of computers, the main advantage is the ability to create Automated Manufacturing Processes. Typically CIM relies on closed-loop control processes, based on real-time input from sensors. It is also known as flexible design and manufacturing.


Maintenance


Keep in safety and protect from harm, decay, loss, or destruction. Supply with necessities and support. Activity involved in maintaining something in good working order. The act of sustaining life by food or providing a means of subsistence. Means of maintenance of a family or group. Maintain for use and service. Maintain by writing regular records.

Preventive Maintenance (PM)
The care and servicing by personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment and facilities in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection, and correction of incipient failures either before they occur or before they develop into major defects. Maintenance, including tests, measurements, adjustments, and parts replacement, performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. Preventive Maintenance (wiki)

Best Practice is a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives because it produces results that are superior to those achieved by other means or because it has become a standard way of doing things, e.g., a standard way of complying with legal or ethical requirements. Best Practices

Quality Management ensures that an organization, product or service is consistent. It has four main components: quality planning, quality assurance, quality control and quality improvement. Quality management is focused not only on product and service quality, but also on the means to achieve it. Quality management, therefore, uses quality assurance and control of processes as well as products to achieve more consistent quality. Quality Control

The primary goal of maintenance is to avoid or mitigate the consequences of failure of equipment. This may be by preventing the failure before it actually occurs which Planned Maintenance and Condition Based Maintenance help to achieve. It is designed to preserve and restore equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they actually fail. Preventive maintenance activities include partial or complete overhauls at specified periods, oil changes, lubrication, minor adjustments, and so on. In addition, workers can record equipment deterioration so they know to replace or repair worn parts before they cause system failure. The ideal preventive maintenance program would prevent all equipment failure before it occurs.

Waste (law) describes a cause of action that can be brought in court to address a change in condition of real property brought about by a current tenant (or Condo Home Associations or Property Management or City or State) that damages or destroys the value of that property. A lawsuit for waste can be brought against a life tenant or lessee of a leasehold estate, either by a current landlord or by the owner of a vested future interest.

Obligation is a course of action that someone is required to take, whether legal or moral. There are also obligations in other normative contexts, such as obligations of etiquette, social obligations, and possibly in terms of politics, where obligations are requirements which must be fulfilled. These are generally legal obligations, which can incur a penalty for non-fulfilment, although certain people are obliged to carry out certain actions for other reasons as well, whether as a tradition or for social reasons.

But you also need to know more then the definition of responsibility, you must also fully understand life itself, the thing that you are responsible for. You can be responsible, but if you don't understand Life, or understand the cause and effects of your actions and inactions, then the only thing that you will be responsible for is destroying life and murdering people, and that is something you don't want on your resume.

Therefore I will seek a course that enhances the value my enterprise can create for society over the long term. I recognize my decisions can have far-reaching consequences that affect the well-being of individuals inside and outside my enterprise, today and in the future. As I reconcile the interests of different constituencies, I will face choices that are not easy for me and others.

A Hippocratic Oath for Managers
The famous Hippocratic Oath is the earliest and most impressive document in medical ethics.
One translation is: I swear by Apollo the physician, by Æsculapius, by Hygeia, Panacea, all the gods and goddesses, that, according to my best ability and judgment, I will keep this oath and stipulation; to reckon him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents; to share my substance with him and relieve his necessities if required; to regard his offspring as on the same footing as my own brothers, and to teach them this art if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or scipulation, and that by precept, oral teaching and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons and to those of my teachers, and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath, according to the law of medicine, but to no others. I will follow that method of treatment, which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my art. I will not cut a person who is suffering with a stone, but will leave this to be done by practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter I will go into them for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption, and, further, from the seduction of females or males, bond or free. Whatever in connection with my professional practice, or not in connection with it, I may see or hear in the lives of men which ought not to be spoken abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While I continue to keep this oath inviolate, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of my art, respected always by, all men, but should I trespass and violate this oath, may the reverse be my lot.

A modern version is the Declaration of Geneva (1948):

I solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my life to the service of humanity.
I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude which is their due; I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity; the health of my patient will be my first consideration;
I will respect the secrets which are confided in me;
I will maintain by all in means in my power the honor and the noble traditions of the medical profession; my colleagues will
be my brothers; I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics, or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient;
I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception; even under threat,
I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the Laws of Humanity.

I make these promises solemnly, freely, and upon my honor.”


"Most of our decisions are generally based upon the measurement of future benefits that come from making that decision, a decision that hopefully makes us better then what we presently are."

"If you think that being stupid is part of your business, then you are either in the wrong business or the wrong person for business."

Most bosses are the same, they bark a lot but they never say anything. Ignorance on how to use language effectively has caused most of our problems. And as soon as we learn and understand the incredible potential of language, the sooner we will start solving all our problems. Communicating effectively, efficiently, and with respect, can be something every person could learn in school, online, or using a smartphone.

Life Quotes

"The first question to ask is, Does the business your in make a positive difference in peoples lives who are not related to the business in any way, directly or indirectly? If not, then your business is wasting time, people and resources. So you either find a new business or create a new one.  Money is not a Measurement of Worth, so what are you really doing?"

There is no such thing as Negative Feedback, the feedback is either good, bad, right or wrong. And it also needs the reasons why that explains its perceived negativity. Just to call something negative does not explain why it is considered negative. That's the same for positive psychology. You simply can not call something positive without explaining why it's thought to be positive. It's like an ignorant politician who talks but never says anything informative or insightful. Empty words create empty heads. You either use your time to learn something or you learn nothing at all. End the cycle of ignorance.  

Positive Feedback

"You don't want a business to grow, you just want your business to increase its potential and increase its service to the community. Growing is not for profit, for money is not a measurement of reality. Growing is for when the need increases then your business increases, if the need decreases then your business decreases. And when a better alterative comes up you have to make adjustments, or change the business altogether."

Limits to Growth
Making a Difference

Most businesses are mainly local distribution centers for needed products or services. Consisting of important things that people need access too, or can have things delivered in a reasonable time at a reasonable cost. So things should be close enough to supply the need without wasting to much time and resources.

12 Hour Clock Face
To avoid Procrastinating you need to learn some important skills like Focus, Awareness, Self-Discipline, Maintaining Good Health and Energy, having Routines and having a good Memory. You need to keep reminding yourself on the task at hand and discipline yourself to stay focused. There are many Tools to help Manage Time. Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished. But putting off things is not bad, it only becomes bad when the thing that you put off doing causes more stress. Most people can't explain why they procrastinate, it's not because they're lazy, it's mostly from not learning how to be life smart. You can't do everything, but you can manage time more effectively to do more things, and too have more time.

"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to everyone else who has ever lived." (This statement is not totally accurate, it comes down to priorities, responsibilities and choices available)

Schedule (project management) is a listing of a project's milestones, activities, and deliverables, usually with intended start and finish dates. Those items are often estimated by other information included in the project schedule of resource allocation, budget, task duration, and linkages of dependencies and scheduled events.

Chronemics is the study of the role of time in communication. It is one of several subcategories of the study of nonverbal communication. Other prominent subcategories include haptics (touch), kinesics (body movement), vocalics (paralanguage), and proxemics (the use of space). generally defined as the study of human tempo as it related to human communication. A persons use of time, the way in which one perceives and values time, structures time, and reacts to time frames.
Chronemics (PDF)
Monochronic time system means that things are done one at a time and time is segmented into precise, small units. Under this system, time is scheduled, arranged and managed.
Polychronic time system is a system where several things can be done at once, and wider view of time is exhibited and time is perceived in large fluid sections. Examples of polychronic behaviors include: typing while answering telephones or taking notes while sitting participating in meetings. Polychronicity is in contrast to those who prefer monochronicity (doing one thing at a time)
Talk time: There is a direct correlation between the power of an individual in an organization and conversation. This includes
both length of conversation, turn-taking and who initiates and ends a conversation. Extensive research indicates that those with more power in an organization will speak more often and for a greater length of time.
Work Time: The time of high status individuals is perceived as valuable, and they control their own time. On the other hand, a
subordinate with less power has their time controlled by a higher status individual and are in less control of their time – making them likely to report their time to a higher authority. Such practices are more associated with those in non-supervisory roles or in blue collar rather than white collar professions. Instead, as power and status in an organization increases, the flexibility of the work schedule also increases.
Workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information. It can be depicted as a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person or group, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms.
Shift Work designed to make use of, or provide service across, all 24 hours of the clock each day of the week (often abbreviated as 24/7). The practice typically sees the day divided into shifts, set periods of time during which different groups of workers perform their duties. The term "shift work" includes both long-term night shifts and work schedules in which employees change or rotate shifts.

Strategies for a Balanced Life
Tips to Create a Balanced Life
Middle Way is avoiding dangerous extremes of austerities and sensual indulgence, and choosing a more reasonable and balanced approach.
Balance (Metaphysics) is used to mean a point between two opposite forces that is desirable over purely one state or the other, such as a balance between the metaphysical Law and Chaos — law by itself being overly controlling, chaos being overly unmanageable, balance being the point that minimizes the negatives of both.
Golden Mean (Philosophy) is the desirable middle between two extremes, one of excess and the other of deficiency. For example, in the Aristotelian view, courage is a virtue, but if taken to excess would manifest as recklessness, and, in deficiency, cowardice.
Yin and Yang describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality symbolized by yin and yang.
