Management Strategy Assignment

Management Strategy Assignment

I’m particularly interested in looking at the learning and development our supervisors and team leaders need in managing performance. Could you please develop a business strategy to this effect? You might consider areas such as: 

  • Collaborative goal-setting
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Managing Teams
  • Self-management
  • Participative decision-making
  • Interpersonal and organisational communication

I’m sure there are others and part of the work I need you to do is to identify the learning and development gaps for managers in making effective use of STAR’s Performance Management System. I’d appreciate a draft of this strategy by the end of the month.

  • You’ve received the following email from Gary Denver, Plant Manager NSW.

FROM: Gary Denver, Plant Manager NSW

TO: General Manager, Human Resources

CC: Al Perez, GM Manufacturing

SUBJECT: Advice Regarding Maintenance Supervisor

I’ve noticed a few problems with John Thompson, Maintenance Supervisor’s performance over recent weeks.  He has been taking long lunches, particularly on a Friday and at times I have smelt alcohol on his breath.  He also hasn’t been completing the end of shift reports which are required to be counter-signed by me and filed on the computer system.  John has been with STAR for 15 years and has generally been a good performer.  What action can I take to address this underperformance? 

Gary Denver

  1. Prepare advice to Gary on the steps he needs to take to develop a performance improvement plan with John.

  • You’ve now received the following email from John Thompson, Maintenance Supervisor following his meeting with Gary Denver about his performance.

FROM: John Thompson, Maintenance Supervisor NSW

TO: General Manager, Human Resources

CC: Al Perez, GM Manufacturing

SUBJECT: Advice Regarding Maintenance Supervisor

I’ve worked for STAR for 15 years and never been told I’ve done a bad job.  In fact most people I meet reckon I’m a good bloke and I keep the peace between the boys.  All of a sudden John has a problem with me.  Sometimes on a Friday we have a bit of a get together at the pub.  He asked if I had been drinking alcohol over lunch, and I said, ‘Yes, but just a couple’. It’s never been a problem before.  He also went on about me not completing the end of shift reports.  I’ve delegated this to one of the boys on the line because they know what’s been done each day.  I’m very upset at how John has handled this this.  He could have had a chat with me.  He’s gone and made this all formal and I don’t trust his approach.  What can I do?

  1. The matter is at a point where mediation must now occur. Prepare a document to give to Gary and John on the steps that will be followed as you work with them to mediate this grievance.
