Chester Barnard has explained two criticalfunctions of managers: 1) To establish and maintaina communication system with employees.2) To clearly establish an organization’sobjectives and make sure that the employees are motivated to help achieve thoseobjectives.Barnard’sprinciple is being applied in AMAZE INC. is when they give there employees acertain amount of time to do an independent project without the approval of management.They are encouraged to work together as a team rather then just working underone manager. Another way they are encouraged to work together and help build trustin each other is by bringing all the employees and the staff together forcultural and various social events. AMAZE INC. knows if everyone starts feelingcomfortable with each other, then this will result in a more comfortable environmentfor everyone to work in.
The work produced will reflect the results Thesecond principle where management needs to clearly establish the objective andmake sure employees are motivated in doing it, AMAZE INC did an excellent jobin establishing that. Employees are given bonuses to recognize their hard workand their contribution in further establishing the company. By giving them bonuses,it makes the employees know that they are valued, and their thinking is appreciatedin the working environment.
This not only increases motivation but also helps to perform work efficiently . Allthe skills that Mr. Barnard stated are professionally followed by the managementof AMAZE INC. which leads them to being one of the best innovation company. MaryParker believed that managers should get involved with their employees on atask.
AMAZE INC. follows it by making sure their employees are comfortable withtheir managers before giving a task and then they all contribute together onit. Managers are involved in all the task employees do and there is almost nosystem of hierarchy between them. Animportant way a team works is when everyone is involved in decision making of importantproblems.
IN AMAZE INC. everyone is involved in an import decision making. Theimportant decisions are not just left to managers, supervisor or head of the company.
These decisions also involve the employee’s opinions as it is a way to makethem feel valuable. Employees working experience can provide new and innovativeideas which can drastically help to resolve the situation.Mangersencourage their employees by peer nominating them for awards which creates and encouragesa strong bond between them.
Mary Parker collaboration and self management philosophyis also imbedded in the management techniques of AMAZE INC. In my opinion it would be fairto say that AMAZE INC will be better suited if it follows the organic organizationalstructure as it promotes openness between the managers and the employees whichcan results in a higher rate of productivity and satisfaction. Though theorganic structure is a friendlier approach towards running a business, but itmay not be the best as organizational size increases it becomes ratherdifficult to maintain an organic structure as following it would hinder theproductivity. This phenomenon can be clearly seen in large corporations especiallyin manufacturing and sales where this method is not feasible to be employed. That’swhy corporation like Walmart and McDonald’s prefer a more mechanisticorganizational structure where employees are to perform predetermined set goalsto achieve better productivity at the expense of openness to new ideas fromemployees.
