One needs to be aware with the term ‘corporation’ before moving towards the term corporate management. In normal language, the term corporation is used to define those companies which have larger business not only in their own city but have numerous divisions and can produce products and services to their customers. A man power is a key factor behind running such a large business. Therefore, to run the business procedures, the company creates a board of directors who assign the task to different other groups of management experts. To act as an advisor for the business, the services of the board of directors are used.
A corporate management can be broken down into various other pieces to perform the array of task for the company. The company assigns different ranks to the directors like CEO (Chief executive officer) who is responsible as a president, CFO (Chief financial officer, vice president and COO (chief operating officer). To run the company smoothly, several other employees work under each rank mentioned above. The company adopts various styles in the corporate management. Sometimes, it does not seem easy for the company to work on the tasks at once, so they have to take different decisions on daily basis. Some important styles which are suitable for the management is called centralized and decentralized management. To generate favorable results and less ambiguity, one must have to select these styles.
A company needs lower level employees in centralized decision making, who report the information to their managers for taking smooth decisions. The management can produces most accurate results with this type of management and consumes less time. But it remains fine with those companies only which have educated and knowledgeable individuals to whom a company can surely rely upon. Whereas, the decentralized management allows only the managers to have full rights of accessing the information and make the decisions without involving lower level workers.
Certain problems occur when we use decentralized management for our company. In this type of management, several managers take the decisions which sometimes causes a dangerous and harmful situation for the company or the company can suffer loses. The manager consumes most of their time in correcting the mistakes of their lower level workers which is also wastage of time. Because of this situation a sense of completion arises between employees of the company and they start working for their own benefits not for the company’s. The company must hire those experts and consultants who have a good past record.
These consultants try to change the management style by explaining and educating them about their present style and their flaws. Now days, people have become skeptics as they have seen so many management scams in the world. People have a fear of managing a big company which allows other big corporations to concentrate on their corporation method. To avoid these types of situations, a company must be trained with the corporate management programs to aware the employees as well as managers, about the flaws and the improvement solutions.
