Effective management is vital to the success of any company. Management itself can be defined as the organization and coordination of the activities of a business in order to achieve defined objectives. In the traditional management style, companies would control each result, hold employees as the cause of problems, and deal with problems as they happened. The new style of management is so radically different. Instead of blaming employees for problems that arise, the new style focuses on improving and refining existing processes. Employees are self-motivated and a real sense of teamwork exists in this management structure.
New management styles have less hierarchy, and companies don’t treat humans as machines. Things are kept small—departments are kept smaller than 150 people. The theory of Dunbar’s Number says that 150 is roughly the maximum number of people the brain can know, have connections with, and maintain genuine social relationships with. By maintaining connections with co-workers, there can be better collaboration and efficiency.
Many of today’s top companies are using new management styles that encourage teamwork, creativity and boost overall employee happiness.
