Issues for Today's Managers
Adjusting Quickly To Changing Demands
In an era of rapidly changing technology, fast-paced competition, expanding global trade, and frequent shifts in consumer demand, workers and managers are expected to adjust - fast. They may need to embrace new strategic goals, modify work processes, minimize costs, change the product mix, or acquire new skills. And they may be asked to do this time and again.
The Most Valued Asset
Clearly, organizations depend on people to get the job done. Whether worker, manager, or executive, people are every organization's most valued asset. Their decisions and actions directly affect the bottom line.
Issues Facing Today's Managers
Understanding the people factors is key to maximizing organizational performance, enhancing your own job performance, and advancing your career. Leadership, workforce diversity, compensation, conflict resolution, collective bargaining, and organizational change are just some of the issues challenging today's managers. Increasing pressures from outside the organization only complicate your tasks within the organization. To succeed, you need new skills, greater knowledge, and a link to cutting-edge expertise in the broad field of human resources systems and management.
