Companies must view themselves as part of an ecosystem; one entity in an interdependent interconnected environment. Each part of this ecosystem of business is impacted by the decisions and operations of the other parts. The organization of today and tomorrow has to adopt a system-centric model of business or suffer the consequences, most of which being dire and unforgiving. The key to business success is to make sure no part of the system is overlooked and undervalued. Research has revealed that there is a strong correlation between a stakeholder conscious organization’s
Balanced Scorecard Organizations and upper-management often use a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats, and Trends (SWOTT) analysis model to concentrate on the company’s competitive advantages, their possibilities, evaluate how to improve susceptibilities, and avoid coercion. Organizations depend on SWOTT analysis to remain successful in their industries. For a business to be successful and sustain their performance, the entity is obligated by their external environment to generate strategic objectives and constantly evaluate its vision and mission. Organizations must reflect on their mission and vision frequently to assess each for validity, consistency, and making sure the objectives are components useful to the desired vision. Businesses require a tool to measure the execution of objectives.
Motivational Theories and Factors Terry E. Michel PSY 302 Professor Cain May 1, 2011 Motivational Theories and Factors Motivation is a central topic of Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Effective motivation is one of the most important ingredients for moving organizations forward in the modern world. In its technical meaning, motivation is an energizing force that stimulates arousal, direction, and persistence of behavior (DuBrin, 2004).

Running head: ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURAL ANALYSIS Organizational Cultural Analysis Shashi K. Bhat BUS7000 Organizational Behavior and Theory Diane Wuthnow Sunday, February 26, 2012 Introduction Organizational culture is a set of shared values, beliefs and assumptions that are commonly held in an organization. Culture defines the boundaries of an organization and differentiates an organization from another (Robins & Judge, 2012). Culture is what defines the dynamics of an organization and acts as a binding force between the members. Culture establishes implicit norms for the business, and may ultimately attribute to the rise or downfall of an organization. In today’s fast paced globalized businesses, maintaining a strong culture is getting increasingly challenging, and therefore stresses the need for a heightened awareness to maintain it.
How can the role of leadership be best understood in organizational change The role of leadership can best be understood in organizational change as a multi-dimensional phenomenon. Depending on the conceptualisation of organizational change you adopt, the leader’s role could be perceived to be a variety of things, from that of an initiator/visionary, the influencer of culture, a trigger for follower organizational identification, someone who redefines resistance, or a sense maker who introduces new discourses. The most useful approach can be to consider an issue from a number of different theoretical points of view before determining the most effective intervention. Leadership has been conceived of in a multitude of different ways varying from Great man theory (Borgatta, Bales and Couch, 1954; Cawthon, 1996), trait theories (), and style theories (). More recent conceptualisations of leadership include contingency theory (), and transformational leadership ().

Reflective Journal on Leadership Leadership Literature and Personal Experience In today’s highly competitive business environment, effective leadership is a must to achieve organizational goals which is essential for business success. According to Kierson (2009), a leader, in the context of organizations, is someone who can be counted on to create the future. In order to catch up with the rapid changes in the global business world, organizations modify themselves to a more knowledge-based workforce structure with highly specialized team members who are given great autonomy. As a result, becoming an effective leader requires having not only hard skills but also soft skills because soft skills are critical for productive performance in today’s workplace (Robles, cited in Nealy 2012, p. 453). In Robles’ study, the ten soft skill attributes categorized from executive listings include communication, courtesy, flexibility, integrity, interpersonal skills, positive attitude, professionalism, responsibility, teamwork, and work ethic (Robles, 2012).
Applying the line of fit concept to operations strategy implementation helps a company or the implementation team to determine if the alignment between the requirements of the market and the company’s operation resources capabilities has been or is been achieved. Implementation of operations strategy can be a period of high risk. This can be mainly attributed to the fact that implementation typically involves making internal changes to the organization in terms of structure, control systems and other organizational features and also dealing with changes in the external environment (Reed & Buckley, 1988). These changes have the potential to affect the balance between the market requirements and operations resource capabilities and introduce the element of risk during the implementation phase.
