My column today is entitled, "MANAGING FROM THE BOTTOM-UP" - A simple technique for creating worker responsibility.
"Over the years there has been a lot of discussion about
Theories X, Y, and Z in management; whereas "X" is autocratic, "Y" is
more of a "carrot and stick" mentality and "Z" promotes individual
participation. Remarkably, despite the many years of promoting the
rights of the worker, today we primarily live in a Theory X world.
Employees are told what to do and when to do it, without any interest in
their input. Today, this is commonly referred to as "micromanagement."
Under this approach, although the work will eventually get done, there
is no loyalty to the company by the employee, mistakes are made and
quality suffers, and productivity declines since there is no personal
sense of urgency by the employee. In other words, the company works, but
not like a well-oiled machine." Click to read MORE http://www.phmainstreet.com/timbryce.htm You can either read it on-line or tune into my
