Contemporary Issue

We are more and more having to compete in a global market. As organizations

plan and execute plans there are many decision considerations, such as:

* Some countries have favorable tax laws for their businesses and have tariffs

on imports.

* Labor costs are usually cheaper overseas and some U.S. firms “offshore” their


*America has a diverse populatiom and should maximize resources needs by

utilizing that workforce; yet some identifiable groups are underutilized.

* Many organizations consider diversifying their product lines in order to

balance business cycles and to offset changes in supply and demand.

* Effective management techniques are sometimes elusive and ongoing training

and development efforts are made to develop human resources.

* Some organizations peruse research findings while others feel such reports

found in journals and professional magazines are not relevant because their

organization is “different.”

* Some organizations are unionized and feel this causes a competetive

disadvantage while others see this as a positive because you can deal with a

formal cohesive group.

* Motivation of the workforce to excellence and taking more responsibility is

always a goal but is often not achieved by companies.

* Technology and systems can facilitate productivity but is costly and

sometimes the workforce resists change.

* Total quality management is a process that can lead to ever improving

results while emphasizing employee empowerment, customer satisfaction, and

proactive financial reports.

* The charter of management remains to accomplish the mission of the

organization while optimizing the return on investment.

American management faces numerous known and sometimes not yet known

challenges. Proper direction can come from relevant and effective research.
