These goals are clearly identified and defined. These goals are equally understood by every one in the organization. All employees must accept and subscribe to these goals. Progress towards goal must be measurable. Process Oriented ApproachOrganizations are made up of a number of system and subsystems which are in an independent and inter dependent relationships with each other. Organizations must maintain meaningful relationship with suppliers and other who have control over input. Internal allocation of input resources has to be need based.

However he may also be the consumer of the products of this organization and may expect better quality and cheaper price. Hence organizations have to perform a balancing act to satisfy various demands of the same stakeholders.

Competing Values Approach The Competing Values Approach is the criteria you value and use in assessing an organizations effectiveness.16SNEHA SHARMA P-41MEGHNA RAJPURA P-45Criteria Return on investment

Market share

The concept of OE is subjective.18SNEHA SHARMA P-41MEGHNA RAJPURA P-45Problem to the approach This approachs perception is on how well an organization is doing on the criteria rather than clarifying in which criteria the constituencies are emphasizing19SNEHA SHARMA P-41MEGHNA RAJPURA P-45FlexibilityOrganizationPeopleControlMeansEndsCellsDefinitionOFMAble to adjust well to shifts in external conditions & demandsOFEAble to increase external support and expand size of workforceOCMGoals are clear and understoodOCEVolume of output is highPCMChannels of Communication facilittate informing people about things that effect their workPCESense of order, continuity and smooth functioning of operationsPFMEmployee trust, respect, and work well with each otherPFEEmployee have training, skill and capacity to do their work properly

Comparison of Approaches24Approach DefinitionWhen UsefulGoal AttainmentAn organization is effective to the extent that it accomplishes its stated goals. The approach is preferred when goals are clear, time bound and measureable.SystemsIt acquires needed resources.A clear connection exists between inputs and outputs.Strategic ConstituenciesStrategic Constituencies are at least minimally satisfied.Constituencies have powerful influence on the organization, and it must respond to demands.Competing ValuesThe emphasis of the organization in the four major areas matches constituent preferences.The organization is unclear about its own emphases, or changes in criteria over time are of interest.Approaches to measuring organizational effectiveness25Approaches to measuring organizational effectivenessExternal resource approach
