Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model Case Analysis

Using the Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model, conduct an analysis of a BANKS outputs. Remember that outputs exist at the individual, group and organizational levels and that there are often differences between the outputs an organization specifies in its strategic plans and those that are actually achieved.
1. Identify the key outputs and justify why they are the most important to your analysis.
2. How do the various outputs affect each other?
3. What problems/synergies do you see that are created by conflict/coordination of outputs?

For help: (look for congruence model)

//Before conducting analysis for the Banks, we have to understand the Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model. We should understand the working process of this model and its importance to analyze the process of the organization. So we will write about this model under the heading of Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model, for example: //

Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model

Organization Development is a planned effort to increase the efficiency of the organization though planned involvement of the processes of the organization (Beckhard, 1969). The change management is a part of Organization model and among the various organizational models Nadler - Tushman Congruence Model is discussed.

Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model

Nadler and Tushman's model is a very harmonious model. It is an open system model which analyses the output of various organizations. According to Nadler-Tushman congruence model, organization's efficiency is determined by working together of the various elements of the organization.

The input-environment includes the factors outside the organization. They have an impact on the organization. Next input is resources that include tangible and intangible resources. It comprises various disciplines like human resource, marketing and also intangible resources like identification in the market, etc. History means the past, which has an impact on the present functioning of the organization. Next comes the components of system I.e. Task (work to be done by the organization and its team); individual (skilled employee who has to do the task assigned); formal organizational arrangements (process, system, etc which help individuals to do tasks) and lastly informal organizations. The inputs are processed and transformed into output. The output I.e. Performance and efficiency is mostly affected by the behavior of individual, group and inter group behavior and lastly organization as a system. The Nadler-Tushman model is based on a large number of assumptions (Notable Models, 2008). These suppositions are as follows:

- The organizations are open social systems in a large environment.

- They are dynamic units.

- The behavior of organization takes place at the individual, group and organizational level.

- Among the individual, group and organizational levels of the organizational behavior, interaction takes place regularly.

//As per the requirements, now we have to explain about the importance and key outputs of the model. This will help you to define its importance in the baking industry. It is not only a general overview, but it also discusses the importance of ...
