Statement Review By Mary Parker Follett About Knowledge, Expertise And Managers

Question

Mary Parker Follett proposed that ‘knowledge and expertise, rather than managers’ formal authority deriving from their position in the hierarchy, should decide who would lead at any particular moment’ (Waddell, Jones & George 2013, p. 44).

TASK

Discuss and critically evaluate this statement in the form of an academic essay.  In your discussion explore whether Frederick Taylor and Henri Fayol would agree with Follett.

Summary

A very crucial and sensible topic was once raised by an intellect known as Mary Parker Follett. He very well raises the concern about owning the authority and raised the question to the businesses that who should own the decision making power, should it lie with the so called managers or it should be transferred to the people who are actually working and have all the knowledge and skill set about the work.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
