2. Classical approach of the manager
Traditional or classical management focuses on efficiency and includes bureaucratic, scientific and administrative management. (Ward M., 1995)
2.1 Bureaucracy management
Weber, M., known as the Father of Modern Sociology analysed bureaucracy as the most logical and rational structure for large organisations. Bureaucracies are founded on legal or rational authority, which is based on law, procedures, rules, hierarchy and so on. Positional authority of a superior over a subordinate stems from legal authority. Charismatic authority stems from the personal qualities of an individual. Efficiency in bureaucracies comes from: (1.) clearly defined and specialised functions; (2.) use of legal authority; (3.) hierarchical form; (4.) written rules and procedures; (5.) technically trained bureaucrats; (6.) appointment to positions based on technical expertise; (7.) promotions based on competence; (8.) clearly defined career paths. (Weber, M.)
Bureaucracy is best suited for stable environment however its weaknesses are inflexible or slow decision making process, slow response to change and the rules becomes the end.
