TASK 1: Governance of organisa

TASK 1: Governance of organisations

The ability to understand how organisations operate begins with an understanding of how they are governed.

»
TASK 1

Organisations are governed in different ways. Complete the table below giving THREE (3) examples of different types of organisations (e.g. Public Sector, Private Limited Companies (PLCs), third sector or voluntary/not for profit, sole traders etc) and explain how each one is governed.

(Refer to AC1.1 Outline the governance of different types of organisation and the Indicative Content for this AC)

COMPLETE THE TABLE:

Organisation type Explanation
1. Public Sector Because there is no market mechanism of monitoring performance, other ways must be found to ensure that organisations achieve the objectives and service delivery targets established for them. Normally an overseeing organisation will monitor their compliance and performance against a set of government or local authority measures. The overseeing organisation can also be involved in negotiating budgets and hiring of managers. Manager performance can be monitored by the overseeing organisation
2. PLC A Private Limited Company will have a Board.

The Board is accountable to shareholders for managing the Company in a way which promotes the long-term success of the Company for the benefit of the shareholders. The Board set the organizations standards, vision and strategy as well as creating and role modeling the organizations culture. The Board is also a decision-making body on matters that effect the whole organization.

3. Sole trader Sole Traders should implement policies, procedures and performance measures. A small business will also need to define and regularly update its risk management policy.

»
TASK 4b
The ability to apply management and leadership approaches to a variety of work based situations is an essential management skill.

Complete the table below by summarising THREE (3) management and leadership approaches. For each approach, explain how it can be applied and adapted to respond to different work based situations (e.g. business as usual, crisis and emergency, one to one, large group/team).

(Refer to AC3.2 Summarise recognised management and leadership approaches; AC3.3 Explain how management and leadership approaches can be applied and adapted in different work based situations and the Indicative Content for these ACs)

COMPLETE THE TABLE:

Summary of management and leadership approach Explain how the approach can be applied and adapted to this work-based situation
1. Coaching performance.
Coaching is asking questions rather than providing answers. The question should be open to help the individual to find their own answer. That process leads to a culture where people think for themselves in most situations. In a one to one coaching is a very powerful tool for unlocking potential. Using open questions to lead someone to an answer they already know makes them feel empowered to arrive at their own decision.

In a DRM (daily review meeting) using a coaching question to answer a challenge can lead to someone arriving at their own answer but it can also lead to the team supporting each other with answers.
2. Setting Objectives
Objective setting is a direct management approach which provides individuals with smart actions that lead to a desired outcome. Setting objectives in a one to one dialogue situation allows for an open discussion around the objective. You can agree on the detail, time scales and outcomes to ensure that the objective is S.M.A.R.T.

Setting objectives in a crisis can be a bit more challenging but if they are very specific, with a clear and agreed outcome with shorter timescales to affect the crisis they can extremely effective. The most important thing is to always follow up with the individual at an agreed time.
3. Delegating Responsibility
Delegating is choosing task from your own workload and entrusting individuals with the task. Delegating is a key element to growing the maturity and trust in a team. Delegating responsibility during normal operation gives someone in the team the opportunity to develop their skills and to understand and appreciate the role. Most people will feel empowered and engaged by being involved in taking on more responsibility.
Delegating responsibility during a crisis would have to be agreed with the understanding that the individual is comfortable with the responsibility considering the situation. However this demonstrates real trust and belief in the persons abilities which will empower and enthuse them as long as they are comfortable with the responsibility.

TASK 5: Knowledge, skills and behaviours of an effective manager

The ability to understand and apply knowledge, skills and behaviours to be effective in a management role leads to success.

»
TASK 5a

Explain SIX (6) knowledge and skills you believe are required to be an effective manager.

(Refer to AC4.1 Explain the knowledge and skills required to be an effective manager and the Indicative Content for this AC)

COMPLETE THE TABLE:

Knowledge/skill Explanation
1. Coaching Understanding how to coach someone through a situation is a key skill to leading a team. Knowledge of the situation isn’t important if you have experts working on the situation asking questions and helping them to make decision based on the outcome of those question will solve most situations.
2. Listening Listening with real interest to your team will help to improve performance as they are best placed to understand what is needed to improve. This also makes the team feel that what they have to say is being valued and they will therefore continue to communicate.
3. Objective setting Setting objectives creates direction for the team and the department. Short and long-term objectives should always be S.M.A.R.T.
4. Prioritising tasks Prioritising tasks helps the team to work in an organised and structured way. Using a daily review meeting to talk through the priorities for the day aligns the team to one clear direction.
5. Delegation Delegating takes is the best way of maturing a team. If a team feels regularly empowered and trusted to take on the tasks of the leader, they will grow the ability to make their own decisions based on experience. This can lead to a very high performing and independent team allowing the leader to focus their time on implementing improvements.
6. Follow Up If you set objectives or delegate tasks you must always follow up. Without this step, the task becomes less important and you undermine all that you wanted to achieve with the delegation.

TASK 5c
Using well-chosen examples, explain the impact a manager’s knowledge, skills and behaviours can have on teams, colleagues and customers.

(Refer to AC4.3 Explain the impact of knowledge, skills and behaviours on the team, colleagues and customers and the Indicative Content for this AC)

COMPLETE THE TABLE:

Group Impact of manager’s knowledge, skills and behaviours
1. Teams While working in my previous department I was challenged with taking over the leadership of the worst performing team. When I started working with the team I set a very high standard that I expected them to achieve (stretch target) and continually reassured them that we would get there together. Over time, using different skills such as objective setting, coaching, delegation, follow up and regular feedback the team became the number 1 performing team within the department in every way. This included behaviours, KIP’s and standards.
2. Colleagues Seeing the performance achieved in my previous role, my peers began to inherit my behaviours and professionalism. They also started to trust their teams to take on more using the succession planning model I had successfully used to grow my team.
3. Customers Based on the standards and behaviours created above. Customers had confidence that the team cared about the product and were impressed with their level of knowledge and engagement.
