Management Thought & OB

Classical Approaches to Management

 

Chester Barnard – “An Enterprise can operate efficiently and survive only when the organisations goals are kept in Balance with the aims and needs of the individuals working for it. A principle in which people can work in stable and mutually beneficial relationships over time. Apart from this, one also needs to have moral purpose in their employees and need to build informal relationships.”

Criticism – Focussed on Production Efficiency, ignoring workplace harmony.
