In this chapter I have understood that Organizational Information Theory is mainly concerned with how organizations practice information to make sense of it. It also explains how individuals within organizations communicate important information in order to assure success and effectiveness in their environment. Specially, Karl Wieck highlights the importance of human interaction as essential to handling information thus; communication is the main concentration of his theory. The main idea is that organizations are not just simply structures or building blocks but are instead repeatedly changing and varying entities or objects, created by their members. By making the process of reducing equivocality central to his theory, Wieck stresses the

Over the past few decades, the information age has had a major impact on business – one of the biggest being globalization. This has, out of necessity, changed how business is managed – and introduced new and fascinating facets and concerns for business management, as well. We’ll look at a few of them here: multinational corporations, culture shock experienced by managers working abroad, fair trade issues, ethical issues faced by managers in dealing with international business, the difference in managerial styles that can occur between different countries, and the management style of privately held companies in China. Multinational corporations are the big engines of globalization. According to Guillen, the 500 largest multinationals account
Cognitive conflict and Affective conflict Allen C. Amason (1996) distinguishes between two different kinds of conflicts, i.e. cognitive conflict and affective conflict. His study examines the paradoxical effects of conflicts on strategic decision making. Top management teams make strategic decisions by combining their diverse cognitive capabilities with some sort of interaction process. According to him “decision quality, consensus, and affective acceptance are by-products of those decisions and together are all equally necessary for sustainable high organizational performance.
Few researchers have acknowledged influence tactics as categories of proactive behaviours (Kipnis, Schmidt & Wilkinson, 1980; Schriesheim & Hinkin (1990); Yukl, Falbe & Youn, 1993; Yukl & Tracey, 1992). The research findings conclude that influence is important in all forms of human relationship and it is a fundamental part of organisational behaviour which spawned unlimited interest from behavioural theorist. In every organization; reward, discipline, performance review, role differentiation work direction, supervision and organisational change involve different use of influence tactics. Many studies also show that effective leaders need to possess the ability to recognise when to use different tactics of influence as well as the skill required to effectively carry out these influence attempts (Bolino & Turnley 2003; Kipnis, Schmidt & Wilkinson 1980; Yukl 1998; Yukl & Falbe 1990). Likewise, in the effective use of downward influence tactics, many empirical studies are in agreement that the most effective manager in organisation should not only understand the nature of influence, but also “what” influence tactics are available to them, and “how” and “when” to use those tactics (Case, Dosier, Murkison & Keys 1988; Kaplan 1986; Kipnis & Schmidt 1988; Mowday 1978; Schilit & Locke 1982; Yukl & Falbe 1990).
The relationship of epistemology, methodology, and methods in advance qualitative research are of inestimable importance. Their interrelationship is uniquely suited to the proper function of the three methodologies, but with special attachment to qualitative study. Each component are interdependent on the other, and justify each other. So are all of the approaches in qualitative research, where the researcher as the instrument is able to synergize all of the parts in to a holistic whole. Epistemology justifies and evaluate while modifying methodology which in-turns guides and evaluates methods.
The major difficulties that companies face are geopolitical issues, working successfully in multinational groups, moral and environmental concerns, the foibles of worldwide supply chains and the always present need to understand cultural backgrounds. Human Resources Management (HRM) comes head on with a lot of these challenges having as a goal the reinforcement and the improvement of the effectiveness and the organizational performance. They have to introduce new tactics that lower the expenses and aim to make the employees give their best efforts. This brings more competition which means there is a need for better performance by increasing the competitiveness and loyalty of the employees. More specifically, HRM must overcome any barriers that might come up to globalizing such as employment policy, poverty, limited education and technology, culture or even
There are numerous obstacles when company enters into another market as it requires a considerable measure of venture and a great deal of labor as well as focus of the top management.
