Introduction Systems and Contingency theory recognizes that external factors as well as internal factors affect management. The Contingency theory is offered as an alternative to Open Systems theory as the foundation for improved organizational performance, since it can provide more precise conceptual variables. In addition, providing a way of distinguishing between organizations as well as situations faced by organizations (or the same organization over time) is an aspect systems and contingency theory focuses on. Systems theory and contingency theory therefore attempt at providing an understanding of how organizations ought to be structured. The following paper will discuss the systems theory and the contingency theory.
Moreover, the definition of this goal helps management of Target to take decisions local and global focus their energies and resources on the critical aspects that determine the overall result. The basic principles of TOC could help Target in supporting elements which contribute to improving managerial reasoning in the management of processes and interactions among resources, activities and people of company. Finally, it is valuable to identify the impediments that affect the achievement of the result that Target aims to achieve system (constraints). In particular, it is necessary to know whether the constraints are internal (in the process, resources, policies), or if external (the supplier market, the buyer 's market). After identified the restriction is advisable to apply the continuous improvement process proposed by the
In this way, the plan contributes to managing potential threats that make it difficult to achieve project objectives and how to exploit the opportunities for better project performance. To make it more effective, the risk management plan includes specific roles and responsibilities team members assume towards handling the threats. Also, the plan also details the responses to be employed once the anticipated threats occur as well as the opportunities. The risk management plan is a course of action for the better management of project threats and exploitation of its
To organise for project management requires an understanding of the organisation’s architecture which includes the organisational hierarchy - the grouping of internal business units, the authority lines and interaction with one another. Each of these aspects should be designed to support project management within the organisation. Structure should follow strategy or else it may impede communication, coordination and decision making which are all key to success (Brevis, 2014, p. 224). Hence, an important function of upper management is to support project teams by either redesigning the organisation to emphasize projects or integrating projects into the current organisation (Graham & Englund, 2004).

Worksheets 1a and 1b are designed to document the major site values and to relate these to the principal management objectives.

Values are
Setting the objectives must be done before management can identify potential events affecting their achievement. • Event Identification – management identifies potential events that could affect the entity either adversely or presents an opportunity and emanates from internal and external sources. • Risk Assessment – consideration of the extent to which potential events have an impact on the achievement of the organizations objectives. Evaluate the risks that have been identified in order to form a basis for determining their management. • Risk Response – after the determination of relevant risk, management determines how it will respond.
2. Analyzing and Evaluating Implications of the Internal Environment Companies use the VRIOS framework as a tool to analyze its resources and capabilities internally. By understanding these resources and capabilities clearly, it can identify strategic areas that makes the company distinctive, valued and to maintain its competitive advantage. By “completing this analysis, Nando’s can strategically action whether to: • Defend the current means of value-creation. • Increase the advantage gained from these means.
According to Fitzpatrick et al., collaboration of stakeholders may foster a better understanding and ownership of the evaluation leading to greater use of the results and empower stakeholders (2011, p. 189) The participatory approach has the evaluation manager/coordinator collaborate with the stakeholders to define the evaluation’s objectives, to develop its methodology, to collect and interpret information, and to develop conclusions and recommendations. The stakeholders’ role is to work with the evaluation team, participate in collecting additional information, and describe their experiences (Aubel,
What emerged from the study, are a set of best practices that could facilitate the process of designing, implementing, and monitoring performance management. These are: internal and external alignment; simplicity; flexibility; decentralized control; a measurement process; greater links between pay and performance; feedback from multiple sources; senior management involvement and employee
