New Content: Management Tasks 50 Years Later


A thoughtful, incisive look at the basic management tasks that were commonly accepted in 1967 compared with similar tasks as they have currently evolved:

  • Planning
  • Organizing
  • Directing
  • Coordinating
  • Controlling ... known as the PODCC management model


Frederick W. Taylor was frequently mentioned as the father of management science and as a model for efficient operations, along with hierarchical, government-style organizational processes.

The humanistic, sociological studies of Dr. Rensis Likert and others were just being introduced as "New Patterns of Management," leading some to experiment with more participative management systems.

Q Have those tasks evolved into an entirely different set of imperatives? What have those 50 year-old management tasks evolved into today? Are IT consultants (working in a field full of Millennials) seeing greater impact on management styles than consultants dealing with manufacturing & distribution?

A Join us. Voice your opinions and gain new perspectives! Our round table group of seasoned managers and consultants will provide their wisdom, experience, and perspectives. Consultants heavily involved with 'culture change' and 'organizational development' should provide positive and negative cases and observations based on actual engagements! Be part of a larger group with a wide range of opinions.

Perhaps this discussion will lead to a future look at the multi-generational aspects and gaps that management now faces as young rising stars take the reins. Led by Dick Morgan.
