Lower-level management and comprehensive analysis of management

Using APA style and references, please respond (min 250 words) to the following question.

How is lower-level management analysis different from comprehensive analysis of management? Is the latter approach suitable for an organization focusing on increasing productivity by concentrating on the "one best way" to perform a task?

Solution Summary

This report consists of a discussion of lower management level analysis compared to total management analysis. Emphasis is given to the tasks of management along the three levels of management - at the top, middle, and lower management levels. It was noted that in determining the factors leading to employee productivity, concentrating the analysis at the lower level of management may not be that effective. With the belief that all aspects of management has specific roles in both individual and organizational performance, a comprehensive analysis of the management as a whole is recommended in identifying determinants of employee productivity.
