Job Design Strategies • Industrial engineering – the study of work cycles to determine which, if any, of its elements, may be modified, combined, rearranged or eliminated in order to reduce the time needed to complete the work cycle. • Job adaptation to employees’ needs – fit the machine to the person rather than the person to the machine.
Self-managed work teams ‘ ... the one who emerges as team leader is the one who determines the overall purpose or goal and the rest of the team members are at liberty to manage the methods with which the goals are to be achieved’.
Home-based work • Increasing shift toward telecommuting or home- based work. • Home-based businesses account for 35.6 per cent of all small businesses.
Virtual work teams have goals, responsibilities and/or projects to coordinate or manage, and they do so by using technology to communicate across national boundaries or even countries.
Diversity Management • Basic form: ‘the variety of age, gender, race and cultural differences in the workplace’. – p. 209 of the textbook • In reality: ‘a strategy to create opportunities to attract the brightest talent from the entire human resource pool and then to develop and retain that talent in order to maintain a competitive position in the market’. – p. 209 of the textbook
