Presentation Transcript

“Human behaviour is motivated by the desire to fulfill certain needs” (Maslow)

  • How to maintain worker motivation?
    • Works fulfill the first two needs by providing money
    • In virtual organization, the problem of socialization become much more difficult than in conventional organization
    • The freedom and independence of virtual organization, give people more control and offer self-esteem and self-actualization
    • BUT, socialization must precede self-esteem
co ordination
  • Problem ensuring right degree of co-ordination: enough to keep focused on the organization’s goals, but not too much to restrict creativity and flexibility
  • 3 methods of ensuring co-ordination:
    • Top-down; more restrictive, controlling
    • Centre-outwards; less hierarchical but there is a tendency for the centre to gravitate towards the centre of power
    • Diffused co-ordination; reciprocal co-ordination, each members known their own roles, the roles of their colleagues and how to adapt without losing focus in the final goal.
  • Compliance becomes much more difficult to enforce in organizations where key employees work at a distance from headquarters.
  • Virtual organizations need strong codes of ethics that emphasize transparency , accountability and social responsibility.
  • Workers need to be motivated, socialized and trained to internalize the recommended norms of the firm and buy into its system of ethics and values

  • The choice for value
    • The mix chosen should be the one that creates the maximum value for customers and shareholder
  • The choice for co-ordination
    • Virtual co-ordination reduces the time and costs that are required for co-ordination and thus improves efficiency. But, it never entirely becomes a substitute for face-to-face contact

Virtual vs Real
  • The choice for efficiency
    • It is necessary to look at the concept of efficiency on two levels, each process should be designed in the most efficient way possible and each process should contribute to organizational efficiency as a whole .
  • The choice for innovation
    • Innovation now longer needs to be concentrated in one place or come from dedicated, full-time research staff.

  • The choice for motivation
    • People are easier to manage and motivate within fairly close graphical and cultural boundaries. Distance can’t be entirely overcome by communication technology, personal contact and presence are required to at least some extent
  • The choice for networking with supplier and customers
    • It depends on four things: nature of the supplier, the needs of the customer, the nature of the products/services being sold, and firm’s own facilities and competencies

The choice is never a final one.

Times change: the environment alters, customer needs change, new technologies open up new possibilities.

The choice should reflect the dynamic needs of any business system.
