Refer to your slides along with my notes. SLIDE TITLE : Describe the Manager’s Functions, Roles, and Skills MY NOTES: ● This class will teach you to get good at getting other people to work! That’s what a manager does. ● Organizations are more productive than individuals ever are. ○ Why is this? Consider diversity in skills, assigned tasks, shared work, etc. ● Management=technical tool operating as a technical employee w/ specialized skills ● Management position=pay raise, leading, controlling your work environment ● NOT TESTING ON MINTZBERG ● Midrange manager v. Upper ○ Less people in upper ○ Upper sees big picture and all other areas beyond midrange ○ Think of a triangle in regards to the number of employees in each division of management SLIDE TITLE: EFFECTIVE VS. SUCCESSFUL MANAGERIAL ACTIVITIES ● Refer to slide, the tasks listed are not a recipe for success, but they will help you improve ● What should you spend your time on as a manager? SLIDE TITLE: EFFECTIVE VS. SUCCESSFUL MANAGERIAL ACTIVITIES (#2) ● Three kinds of managers ○ Average ○ Successful ○ Effective ● How can I best use my time?? ● Find a balance and pick what works for you ● MAKE SURE YOU REVIEW THE HOW TO SPEND YOUR TIME SLIDE TITLE: Complementing Intuition with Systematic Study ● What is intuition? ○ Instinctual ○ Gut feeling ● Men likely don’t listen to their intuition as often as women ● Women lean more towards emotion which is linked to intuition, rather than cold hard fact like men. ● When hiring staff that will hire other staff, who should you hire? ○ Man or woman with the same qualifications? ■ Woman. Because she likely will be able to get a feel for the kind of person she is interviewing, not just listen for the factual answers. ● Where does intuition come from? ○ Experience SLIDE TITLE: Identify the Challenges and Opportunities of OB Concepts ● Mix of gender, ages, ethnic groups is ideal for employment ● Competition and diversity changes everything ● Nowadays social media allows 24/7 contact from work ● Why don’t people take their vacation days? ○ Competition ■ Dictates people being available CONSTANTLY SLIDE TITLE: Identify the Challenges and Opportunities of OB Concepts(second to last slide with that title) ● Often times the relationship between someone and their immediate supervisor determines how long they stay ○ Long stay> likely stronger team ○ Less time training ○ Good work environment SLIDE TITLE: Three Levels of Analysis in this Text’s OB Model ● Systems model (refer to slide) ● We want the outcomes ● How do we do that? ○ Processes ● What do we have? ○ Input ■ Which we use in our processes ● How to Raise Starting Income for UNT Business Graduates discussion ○ Raise entrance standards! ■ Bring in better students SLIDE TITLE: Outcome Variables ● Good attitudes: help productivity> better customer service ● OCD: Organizational Citizenship Behavior ○ Going above and beyond their job ● Effectiveness vs. Efficiency ○ Efficiency ■ Using things the best way (fastest,least materials,etc) ○ Effectiveness ■ Doing the right thing END OF CHAPTER 1 I would highly recommend reviewing the Implications for Managers slides at the end of each chapter. CHAPTER TWO: DIVERSITY IN ORGANIZATIONS SLIDE TITLE: Workplace Diversity ● Diversity of customers should probably correlate with the diversity of the organization SLIDE TITLE: Biographical Characteristics and Organizational Behavior ● Why would a company hire someone with a disability? ○ Doing the right thing ○ Tax break ○ Getting someone who works harder b/c they were given the chance to work! SLIDE TITLE: Other Characteristics and Organizational Behavior ● Positive relationship correlation→ one goes up the other goes up ● Negative relationship correlation→ one goes up and the other goes down Be sure to review the implications of managers slides, as well as any vocabulary you aren’t clear on.
