Good Managing

A good manager is identified with the systems approach, you know, the basic benefit of the concepts of systems and their models is related to a better understanding of business problems. Hence, it is strongly believed that anyone who recognizes the concept of systems, is generally better able to understand the problems of today in the light of the events that took place yesterday and the alternatives that were selected. However, we know that an understanding of the situations may have value in itself but may not very useful for the administrator, unless he is able to use it to make predictions about the future.

The manager’s job can be seen as predicting the future consequences (the whole chain of effects) that produce the decisions taken at the present time and under certain circumstances. Of course, not expected that any manager can visualize all dependencies and all the chains of effects, because there are a myriad of relationships and effects in any complex system or situation decisions. However, you may do so within the context of a systems model can be utilized to drive an example, the well-known decision tree, Monte Carlo method. Recall that the decision tree is designed to continue into the future, as much as you can see that future rationally, and incorporate into the description of the states that are considered important factors for the proposed purposes.

It is important that the systems approach, since management systems can be predicted without therefore be a fortune teller, and can integrate different predictions in the model and use it to formulate comprehensive assessments and predictions of alternative actions. Finally, it is important to note that the dynamic nature of a system is a feature that should be considered when designing and using a system. Every system has its dynamic and fairly natural development stages, to recognize these phases allows management to properly control what happens to their advantage and use the features of these phases. Every system evolves according to natural order of activities and thought that goes from concept to execution.

However, in order for the concept of the life cycle of the total system to be operationally useful for administrators, it should be feasible to assess the status of a system as it progresses in its various stages. Students of the same systems and experience indicate that the administrator can extend ideas to reform its system knowledge and operational, to predict developments for assistance in evaluating alternative courses to include aspects of environmental system in all of them.
