But that's a hard step for managers to take. A Harvard Business Review classic. Drucker I do not propose to give here a full-blown "science of management economics," if only because I have none to give. Even less do I intend to present a magic formula, a "checklist" or "procedure" which will do the job for the manager. And while there is plenty of laborsaving machinery around, no one has yet invented a "work-saving" machine, let alone a "think-saving" one.
But I do claim that we know how to organize the job of managing for economic effectiveness and how to do it with both direction and results.
The answers to the [following] three key questions.
What is the manager's job? It is to direct the resources and efforts of the business toward opportunities for economically significant results. But every analysis of actual allocation of resources and efforts in business that I have ever seen or made showed clearly that the bulk of time, work, attention, and money first goes to "problems" rather than to opportunities, and, secondly, to areas where even extraordinarily successful performance will have minimum impact on results.
What is the major problem? It is fundamentally the confusion between effectiveness and efficiency that stands between doing the right things and doing things right.
There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency what should not be done at all. What we need is 1 a way to identify the areas of effectiveness of possible significant results , and 2 a method for concentrating on them.
Unfortunately I know of no procedure or checklist for managerial courage. What is the principle?
Determine or revise the organizational objectives Strategic organizational objectives are the starting points of management by objectives. These objectives stem from the mission and vision of an organization.
If an organization has not formulated these yet, it does not make sense to carry out the next steps. Translating the organizational objectives to employees In order to make organizational objectives organization-wide, it is important that these are translated to employee level. According to management by objectives, objectives should be clearly recognizable at all levels and everyone should know what their responsibilities are in this.
Communication is also an important item for consideration when it comes to expectations, feedback and to giving rewards for objectives that have been achieved. Stimulate the participation of employees in the determining of the objectives The starting point is to have each employee participate in the determining of personal objectives that are in line with the objectives of the organization.
This works best when the objectives of the organization are discussed and shared throughout all levels of the organization so that everyone will understand why certain things are expected of them. In this way, everyone can make their own translation of what their contribution can be to the objectives. This approach increases the involvement and commitment of the objectives.
By broadening the decision making process and responsibility throughout the organization, people are motivated to solve the problems they are faced with in an intelligent manner and they are given the information they need so that they can be flexible in the changing circumstances. This participatory process ensures that personal objectives with respect to general team objectives, department objectives, business unit objectives and ultimately organizational objectives are made clear.
If they cannot be measured, a system will have to be set up in which a monitoring function is activated when the objectives are deviated from. Detection must be timely so that large problems can be prevented. On the other hand, it is important that the agreed objectives do not cause abnormal behaviour of employees for example.
For instance, when a service call must be handled within seven minutes and as a result employees finish these calls after 6 minutes and 59 seconds to meet this requirement.
There are always exceptions to a rule and these situations should always be supervised. Management By Objectives is about growth and development. Each objective comprises mini objectives and it is about supporting these in small steps in the form of coaching by managers or executives.
Create a clear path with sufficient evaluation moments so that growth and development can be monitored accurately. A comprehensive evaluation system is therefore essential.
Employees are evaluated and rewarded for their achievements in relation to the set goals and objectives.
