University of New South Wales - MGMT1002 - Managing Organisational Behaviour

As you learned in the first class of this course, Management is all about achieving things through others. But that is often easier said than done! For this project, your goal is to successfully develop a case study, where your team should:  Interview a manager in an organisation with at least 5 people about a “major people problem” they have encountered in the course of their work (their people problem may have occurred in the past). A major people problem is one that “keeps the manager up at night”.  Record the interview (with permission) & develop a rich understanding of the details related to the problem: symptoms, causes, consequences, who/what/where/why/how.  Define the problem: identify the most critical causes that needed to be addressed in the situation, as well as any other major concerns that should be addressed by the recommendations.  Apply relevant course concepts, readings, frameworks, and/or insights from other credible sources to analyse the situation.  Identify & define key goals of your recommendations, and generate a set of practical recommendations to address the key issues for the interviewee, as well as for future managers who face a similar situation (who you will address in your presentation).  Prepare a written report of up to 10 pages that includes problem description, analysis, goal definitions, and persuasive practical recommendations for the individual and future managers who might find themselves in this situation.

In order to increase the lack of motivation it is suggested that a reward system designed to encourage employees to meet individual goals. For the leadership problems, it has been identified that a telling approach is in use; therefore it is vital that Yong Lee adopts a new leadership style. Lastly, the company’s poor communication can be increased by holding informal gatherings to encourage two-way communications. 1. PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSIS It is has become increasingly apparent that under the current management of Yong Lee, employees are suffering from a lack of motivation, as a result this has both increased the level of negative corporate culture and staff turnover. 1.1 Lack of motivation Under the leadership of Yong Lee, employees have blatantly expressed their concern for the amount of work they receive in contrast to the recognition they get for it.
