  • Title: Points of View, Management in the 21st Century, Talbot Associates, Management Consultants, Dublin
    Descriptive info: Management in the 21st Century.. Is management after 2000 any different to the 20th Century product with all its successes and failures, its lists and fads, its Gurus and shooting stars? Why should the new young managers perform in a different way to their predecessors?.. They probably will act differently.. They will hopefully learn something from the mistakes of the last generation of managers.. They will be better trained and understand the process of management better.. They are facing a faster-moving, more technologically intense environment.. Customers, competitors, investors, employees and peers will be more demanding.. Some of the differences which may arise between the 20th and 21st century management model are described below.. Managing Strategically.. Strategic management will become a more integrated component of the manager s portfolio in the 21st Century.. Strategic managers are not happy with incremental improvements.. They continuously seek to break through the constraints of resources and structure.. Strategic managers have a consistent unblinking focus on their core markets and products, but they are constantly alert to the wider environmental and market forces that affect them.. Strategic managers have vision, and they are able to translate their vision into concrete action, every day.. Adding Value.. As more things are measured, so is the performance of managers.. Management in the private and, perhaps more slowly, but just as inevitably, in the public sector, is increasingly being assessed in terms of performance and the value which it provides.. Management costs.. It should provide a measurable return.. Business value is increasingly driven by the way in which managers exploit the value of all the assets which they manage.. These assets include the well recognised fixed assets such as land, buildings, and equipment, the current assets of cash, receivables and materials and also intangible assets such as culture, knowledge, brands, staff and customer loyalty.. An increasing amount of skill, time and effort will be devoted to measuring and managing these intangibles.. Reducing Cost.. It is no longer enough to keep costs down.. Driven by more aggressive competition and greater openness in the marketplace, nationally and globally, there is an unrelenting pressure on managers to take costs out of the process, to focus only on those products and services where there is comparative advantage and then  ...   People.. In a more prosperous and highly skilled world, managing people will be an even more critical skill.. The routine, repetitive tasks, which are readily definable and controllable, will have been largely automated.. The most valuable managerial skills will be those which foster and develop in people the more subtle human capabilities of innovation, imagination, and commitment.. The traditional employer/employee relationship is changing.. Organisations will have to become communities rather than properties, with members not employees , because few will be content to be owned by others.. Societies will break down into smaller units but will also regroup into even larger ones than now for particular purposes.. Charles Handy,.. Beyond Certainty: The Changing World of Organisations.. (Hutchinson).. It is more challenging, to manage people who are not employees for life, or who are not even employees; who may be working at home or at remote sites; who may have more commitment to a lifestyle than to a career; who are juggling domestic and work responsibilities; and whose earnings may be related to market realities rather than to their position in the company hierarchy.. Ethics.. The activities of the modern company are increasingly under formal and informal public scrutiny.. Society is increasingly open.. The public demands high ethical standards in matters such as employment practices, financial probity, environmental protection, public health and product quality.. An approach to matters of public concern which would not find public acceptability, even if the approach is within the law, can seriously damage a company.. Management have a responsibility to commit themselves and their company to establishing and maintaining high standards of ethical behaviour even in an increasingly competitive marketplace.. Managing Complexity at Speed.. Competition is increasingly intense.. The marketplace is constantly changing.. Employees are skilled, aware and mobile.. Organisations are constantly aligning and realigning.. Shareholders demand above-average returns.. Economies are increasingly open.. The information age has put much more information in the hands of managers - perhaps much more than they can absorb with ease.. The information is also available to competitors, suppliers and customers.. The challenge for managers in the 21st century will not be to direct fixed resources towards the achievement of well-defined goals but to manage a complex changing business ecosystem towards the creation of measurable added value..
