Change, globalization and management
In the cause-effect relationship, change and globalization decisively influence the evolution of management. Obviously, we can also raise the issue of how management has accelerated, through repeated changes at the organizational level, the tendency of globalization. Management with its three dimensions: the existence of the market, the industrial means of organizing production and the corporation as the major form of business organization must adapt to new realities. The “three revolutions in management”: the detachment of management from production, the emergence of managers, professionals in the field and attracting employees in management activities foreshadow a fourth phase that must define the evolution of management in the digital age. The “digital logic” leads to another “managerial logic” which is influenced by the speed with which decisions can be made, by generational changes, by dramatic changes in the environment and by changes in legislation. Attracting employees in activities specific to work management and in increasing production quality, forming joint boards between employees and managers, establishing a profit-sharing system and employee representation on corporate boards are signals of changes in managerial attitudes. Exceptional organizational skills, strong entrepreneurial spirit, the continuous improvement of the staff, the ability to be a finisher are defining components of the management of the future.
