Ten Schools of Thought on Strategic Management (Course)

This is a 38-slide PowerPoint. The Ten Schools of Thought model from Henry Mintzberg is a framework that can be used to categorize the field of Strategic Management. It describes each school in context and provides a critique. Thus, it acts as a very good overview to the entire field of Strategic Management. While academics and consultants keep focusing on these narrow perspectives, business managers will be better served if they strive to see the wider picture. Some of strategic management's greatest failings, in fact, occurred when one of these concepts was taken too seriously. These 10 Schools of Thought are as follows: *The Design School *The Planning School *The Positioning School *The Entrepreneurial School *The Cognitive School *The Learning School *The Power School *The Cultural School *The Environmental School *The Configuration School This document explains each School, its origins, benefit and limitations, related analyses/frameworks, and other attributes. Also includes PowerPoint templates for illustrating this model in your presentation.

TWI Program: Job Relations (JR) Training (Course)

The Training Within Industry (TWI) Job Relations (JR) program teaches supervisors how to evaluate and take proper actions to handle and to prevent people problems. This skill in leading helps the supervisor to improve his ability in working with people.  There are basic principles that, when applied day in and day out, will tend to keep relations smooth and prevent problems from arising. By pointing out the ways that problems do arise one can readily see that preventive action can be taken. This applies particularly in anticipating changes that may not be readily accepted and in sensing changes in output, attitudes, and relationships. However, when problems do arise, there is an organized procedure to handle such problems that helps get better results from the action we take. TWI Job Relations teaches supervisors the four steps for effective leadership.  LEARNING OBJECTIVES  1. Understand the importance and benefits of Job Relations  2. Define the foundations for good relations  3. Explain how to improve Job Relations based on the 4-Step method for JR  4. Define the approach to get feelings and opinions  CONTENTS  1. Understanding Supervisory Responsibility and the Individual  2. Foundations for Good Relations  3. The "Joe Smith" Problem (case study)  4. The Four Step Method for Job Relations  5. The importance of GETTING THE FACTS  6. The importance of WEIGH AND DECIDE  7. The importance of TAKE ACTION  8. The importance of CHECK RESULTS  9.
