Dear Priyanka,

You have written that "Individual department or functional managers need to embrace ownership and responsibility for success achievement and accomplishing outlined strategic initiatives."

This is a too hi-fi management language. In day today life, no manager cares about "strategic initiatives". All that matters is fulfilment of KRA. If he/she does that it is more than sufficient. It is leadership that decides KRAs, whether these meet 'strategic initiatives" or not.

However, to maximize the effectiveness of the organization, managers should be able to work with one another to achieve common goals.

Maximisation of the effectiveness of the managers to achieve common goals is their GM's or VP's job.

It appears that you have caught yourself in the jargon. Take the example of Mumbai Dabbawalah (tiffin carriers). They are barely Class VIII pass and they are not even matriculates. Neither they know anything about management nor have they taken any training on teamwork. Yet their work has attracted the attention of the Howard or other top-notch management institutes. Therefore, simplicity in the working life is the mantra and not the jargon.

Thanks,

Hi DVD

I know i am stepping in late to the discussion, but i must cross swords with you.

I agree with you that Priyanka has used a lot of management jargons.

But if we look beyond the jargons, the statement is correct

Individual managers need to identify with and agree to the overall plan that the organisation has set. If they are working at cross purpose, or each is set a different goal that can be achieved best or only with an action that is opposite of the other, we have a problem. That problem may have been created by the management by setting goals that are not congruent with each other.

To maximise the effectiveness of the organisation, it is necessary that the different departments and teams work together

Individual department or functional managers need to embrace ownership and responsibility for success achievement and accomplishing outlined strategic initiatives. However, to maximize the effectiveness of the organization, managers should be able to work with one another to achieve common goals. This is what going to distinguish between effective and ineffective organisations
