The four-frame model of structural, human resource, political and symbolic theories provide different perspectives and solutions, for the case study, the Dean Creates a New Normal. Each frame views the case in different lens, resulting in multiple a solutions for one distinct problem.
When an organisation is formed certain patterns of behavior will be acceptable to all members of the organisation and the behavioral examples can be seen everywhere within it. This is exactly the role that organisational culture plays. (Rollinson, 2008).Organisations are in some ways similar to fingerprints, each one has its own unique structure. However, an organisation that is completely unique is very difficult to find. (Alvesson, 1956)
However, on account of organization 's structure, policies, particular roles and environments, each body of the four-frame model has its own origin and rooted in specific aspects. Although, logically connected every singular frame holds particular outlooks, accountability and influence.
THE POLITICAL FRAME As discussed earlier, Bolman and Deal describe four "frames" for viewing the world: structural, human resources, political, and symbolic. The political frame is an excellent tool for examining the concept of organizational politics and makes a number of assumptions about organizations and what motivates both their actions and the actions of their decision makers.
Organization structure is a framework which discusses the needs of a project to be successful in organizing. This framework is established at the outset and must be well understood by all concern otherwise it will be impossible to make important decision makings. Too many projects have set out with no clear idea of who the customer is and who is empowered to take these important decisions, and a project which starts in this way is bound to encounter severe difficulties along the way even if it does not end in total disaster.
The human resource frame believes people are the center of an organization and if an organization is responsive to their needs and personal goals, they will deliver quality work ethics. Structural frame creates a workable structure and clarifying the roles and goals of an organization. The political frame believes that managers need to recognize political realities and know how to handle conflict in and out of an organization.
One key responsibility of working as a manager is to recognize the best way to organize and run an organization. A manager who can work with and put into motion the structure and plans of a company is very important to the life of the organization. Chief Executive Officer of Chick-fil-A Dan T. Cathy is an example of such a manager and business owner. Chick-fil-A began its journey in 1960 in Hapeville, Ga. Since then the second
As this decision to axe jobs does not completely align or alleviate the pressures which Ford is under, further decisions (e.g. offshore to Thailand) could be expected for Ford Australia to stay ‘afloat’.
The implementing of the evidence-based practices is a difficult process. In order for the implementation to be successful, strategic planning and implementing must be in place to address the system complexity of the health care, which includes the individual practitioners and senior leaderships (Titler, 2008). Eventually, changing in health care culture leads the organization to be an evidence-based practices environment.
The rational system/structural frame focuses on organizational goals, roles, and technology. They are looking for those appropriate things to meet organization’s environment. The human resource frame emphasizes the relationship between employees and organization. They create organization’s environment or atmosphere to make people feel good to done their job well. The political frame focuses on allocation
In my experience at my workplace, the symbolic frame has appeared to be the least relevant of all of the four frames discussed in this course. There is just not a strong sense of a distinctive culture and there are few strong symbols in the office. This being said even a weak and loosely defined sense of culture is a meaningful observation within the symbolic frame.
Stage 4 - Companies in this stage have broad analytic capabilities for solving local problems, but not at the organization level. Due to duplication of efforts and lack of appropriate employee skill sets and attitudes, the organization has some work to do to reach this level of analytical maturity. The CEO and executive team are supportive of analytical focus, but are not passionate about competing on this basis.
He will need to communicate to them all as to how the restructuring will be done so that they all understand. They will need to know how this will affect the jobs they are doing.
Political: Each and every project has both internal politics and external ones. Internal ones like personal interests, jealousies and cohesive behaviour project occur in all projects and must be considered and managed by stakeholders. The latter refers to those which the stakeholders do not have under their control. These include all political events like tax policies, employment laws, trade reforms,trade restrictions, political stability, environmental regulations, tariffs etc. The factors that should be taken into account when checking for the political forces that can affect the industry are:
The view and metaphorical analogy of an organization as a machine was the result of the only frame of reference available at
