What do you think of the following answers?! - March 22nd, 2009

Q 1: What is the importance to know the organizational purpose? Give examples from available resources. How some organizations launch their operation from definite purpose?

Knowing the purpose of any organization is very important because the purpose works as the guide line through which I can see clearly how to act and how to put plans for my business.
It is the foundational bedrock which all organizations need in order to be involved in any business domain. Organizational purpose helps in dictating how I will use my time, attention, and resources to serve my objectives.
The organizational purpose is what the organization exist to do.
And we should mention that the organizational purpose and objectives are related to each other. If an organization is accomplishing its objectives, it is accomplishing its purpose and thereby justifying its reason for existence.
A clearly defined organizational purpose is contingent upon finding that thing that naturally energizes, excites, motivates, and inspires my business to move forward.

Before establishing any organization, the purpose of establishing this organization is directing its objectives, goals, resources and plans.
For instance, a hospital may have the primary purpose of providing high- quality medical services to the community. Therefore, its objectives are aimed at furnishing this assistance.
On the other hand, the primary purpose of a business organization is to make a profit.

Q 2: What does Suboptimization mean? Clarify your answer with appropriate examples?

Suboptimizationis a process which aims in fulfilling and optimizing the chosen objectives that are integral parts of the broad objectives.
This means, in Suboptimization we divide the broad objectives into small objectives in order to be distributed among all employees or units.
Sometimes, suboptimization may cause a conflict situation among units in the same organization.
For Example, if we have an organization in which we find a hierarchy of objectives, it may happen to find a clash of subobjectives among different units. (Hierarchy of objectives means that the overall organizational objectives and subobjectives assigned to different employees or departments in the organization.)

The appropriate example in which we can apply this term is in the case study which we have in the Midterm exam about the business of truck dealership, especially in Navistar Organization. The one who is in charge should control this and act as the monitor during this process in order to get the result of progress at the end.

Who controls Suboptimization?
Managers in the organization from different units and departments are in charge of controlling Suboptimization. It`s a part of their job to supervise and control Suboptimization.

How can managers minimize Suboptimization?
They can minimize Suboptimization by developing a through understanding of how various parts or units of the organization relate to each other and also by ensuring that subobjectives reflect those relations in proper way.

Q 5: “Avoid regulations, red tape, and paperwork.” Is the last statement of Fayol’s Guidelines? Discuss with appropriate examples from your own experience.

As an introduction to my answer, I`ll bring one example at the beginning and I hope that it will explain what I mean.
We can have the collapse of Soviet Union as an example of red tape laws, unnecessary regulation and the centralization of taking decisions which was monopolized by the head of the Communist Party (The Central Committee). If the leaders from middle and low level at that time have the ability to make decisions without getting back to The Central Committee, they may survive from being destroyed. I`m not saying centralization was the only reason of their destruction but that was one of a group of reasons.
If we don`t trust others how can we build a strong management? It`s important to avoid regulations, red tape, and paperwork because these things slow the process of progress and it leads to the death of productivity, especially for the managers in middle levels and low levels. We should work against centralization and apply the opposite of it which is Decentralization.

Decentralization is the process of transferring and assigning decision-making authority to lower levels of organization hierarchy. In a Decentralization organization the decision-making has been moved to lower levels or tiers of the organization such as divisions, branches, departments or subordinates. Knowledge, information and ideas are flowing from the bottom to the top of the organization.

Another example related to business domain is, in MMG Company which works in construction domain, the top management is giving each manager in each department a wide range of freedom in taking decisions. And under each department, we have groups of work who have the ability to make decisions directly if it`s about their work. This way of a supervised and controlled freedom, enhance the performance of all managers in all levels.
In taking decisions, let people trust in themselves and this cause a high productivity at work.
