The decision model of the manager
There are many problems faced by organizations that come from external and internal factors. The management or direction of the organization is responsible for addressing such issues in an appropriate manner so as to improve or restore the organization’s performance in the current and future years. Solving the problems of any organization involves making informed decisions. The structure of the organization and the location that the employee occupies in the organizational hierarchy affects such decisions. Managers can use models that demonstrate organizational authority, structure, division of responsibilities in the organization, and relations in dealing with daily problems as they are managed by the organization. Using the conceptual framework, this document and the important concepts that managers can use in making decisions that will address the various challenges they face in managing the day-to-day operations of the organization
All organizational and personal decisions must have an ethical basis. The decisions of managers should not jeopardize the ethical values of the organization, individuals or societies. This means that all decisions taken by the manager in dealing with emerging issues should be ethical. The conceptual framework that will be presented in this document is indicative of this. It shows that all decisions must be within ethical boundaries. Strategic changes in the organization, as well as policy decisions, should take into account long-term problems or problems. The leaders of these organizations are developing such strategies
However, their implementation depends to a large extent on the competence of managers in the development process
Managers can also take tactical decisions, which include engaging partners and customers in product improvement initiatives, implementing social responsibility programmes, and increasing the organization’s ability to respond to market dynamics and conditions. In addition to being critical to improving the organization’s relations with the public, tactical decisions also play an important role in improving the organization’s relations with important stakeholders, shareholders and staff. In solving problems related to the business cycle, as well as the duration of tasks, it is important that managers take informed tactical decisions, such as redesigning tasks to increase efficiency of production processes and to minimize the time of execution of tasks (Hansen & Maowen, 2007, p. 517-518)
Problems related to the operations of the organization can also be addressed by managers through the improvement of the social aspects of the tasks performed by the staff. This may include the establishment of conflict resolution mechanisms in which conflict resolution between management and workers will be resolved peacefully without disruption of the work of the organization. The decision-making processes of decision makers need to be aligned with strategic planning as well as tactical decisions to enable the organization to achieve its objectives. It is important that managers should be involved in operational decision-making, as they are directly involved in operations (Gilmore, 2003, p. 143). The duties and tasks of the staff may be involved in the adoption of the operational decisions
Managers have the authority to improve and maintain the organization’s culture in order to make the organization’s goal more efficient. This is a management function, and it is achievable if the organization’s code and rules are followed by employees. Managers are therefore obliged to take various decisions related to the discipline of the staff to ensure that the culture of the organization is maintained during operations. Decision-making on misconduct by staff members is one of the ways. However, there are two decisions to improve staff-management relations. Management should therefore involve staff in making such decisions in order to make them effective. This is because even if the solutions do not directly affect the employees, they will be satisfied with their satisfaction and attitude to work
It should be noted in the decision-making process that feedback is very important. This is because the process includes the management of stakeholders to address the challenges faced by managers as well as other staff members facing the organization. To address the challenges facing them, the new leaders should be familiar with the culture, relationship and structure of the organization and how the organization’s hierarchy has an impact on them. There are problems that can be solved by one decision process. There are, however, problems that need to be merged in order to address them effectively. It is clear that this model is important in dealing with the various problems facing the organizations on a daily basis, as it provides an idea of how to make the right decisions (Ragsdale, 2012, p. 4-5). Managers are given the opportunity to explore various important options in dealing with problems at different organizational levels. However, new managers need to choose the most appropriate models to solve problems that occur in daily tasks
