Give three examples of specialization and division of labor in what areas are you and your friends thinking of specialization what might be the perils of over specialization?

The enormous efficiency of specialization allows the intricate networking of trade among people and nations that we see today. very few of us produce a single furnished good; we make but the tiniest fraction or what we consume we might teach a small part of one college's curriculum, or empty coin from parking matter or separate the genetic material of fruiting files, in exchange of this specialized labor we still receive income adequate to buy goods from over the world.

Advantage economics engage in specialization and division of labor, which increases the productivity of their resources.


Explain what happens if the market price starts too high or too low? i belong to Pakistan so i definitely try to think about the specialization in agriculture because my country has 70% dependency on agriculture... cost of production of agriculture products are far less than other countries... so my area will be agriculture.

the perils of specialization are its disadvantages... in some cases monopolies generated through this type of specialization.

Difference between quality management and project management?

Quality Management is a subset of Project Management. Quality Management consists of quality planning, assurance, and control.

Managing projects requires applying knowledge, skills, and tools and techniques to project activities in order to meet the project objectives. You do this by performing some processes at various stages of the project, as discussed in the previous chapter. That means processes are part of the knowledge required to manage projects. Each aspect of a project is managed by using the corresponding knowledge area. For example, each project has a scope that needs to be managed, and the knowledge required to manage scope is in the knowledge area called project scope management. To perform the project work within the project scope, you need human resources, which need to be managed; the knowledge used to manage human resources is called human resource management.

Each process belongs to one of the nine knowledge areas:

1. Scope Management

2. Time Management

3. Cost Management

4. Human Resource Management

5. Procurement Management

6. Risk Management

7. Quality Management

8. Integration Management &

9. Communication Management

Project quality is defined as the degree to which a project satisfies its objectives and requirements. For example, a high-quality project is a project that is completed on time and with all the work in the project scope completed within the planned budget.

Project quality management includes the following:

1. Plan quality - Determine the quality requirements and standards that are relevant to the project at hand and how to apply them.

2. Perform quality assurance - Ensure the planned quality requirements and standards are applied.

3. Perform quality control - Monitor the quality activities and record the results of these activities in order to assess performance and make necessary recommendations for corrective actions and changes.

What does over capacity mean?

In a way it seems like a contradictory idea. How can a machine be producing 'over capacity' if capacity is the limit of its ability?

When elevators are designed, engineered and built, all the technical data connected with the materials used, their ability to carry loads, and changes that occur to materials during use (related to heating up, for example) all go into a careful estimate of what the elevator can safely carry, and probably also an estimate of the absolute maximum load, which if exceeded, would cause failure. But these are theoretical, or mathematical estimates of the elevator's ability. Given any number of factors, a specific elevator may be able to carry a load larger than the calculated limit for some length of time. But weights just a little over normal safety capacity would cause more rapid wear of the system, and would probably not cause catastrohpic failure.

What is meant by the goal of maximization of shareholder wealth?

Suppose a stock holder buys a stock at $10 and in ten years time the market price of stock shoots up to $55.

This is called maximizing shareholders capital.

From Barry D.

Maximizing Sharholder Wealth refers to the process by which executives in a pulically-owned company, usually, (but also to private companies with shareholders), undertake investing in new projects, maximizing profits from existing products and services, controlling costs, and adding "value" to the company through the process, which hopefully gets reflected in the price of the stock, but alwasy in the increase in Net Asset Value and Equity Per Share.

Sometimes simply selling the company for a premium over the existing price or Asset Value results in Maximizing ShareholderWealth.

Hope this helps,

Why is management theory important?

Management theory is important because it is the study of how to make all the people in your organization more productive. If you are self-employed and have others working for you, or you outsource certain jobs you are unable to do, then you know how hard it is to find qualified competent professionals to provide you a service or work for you. You want to maximize labor productivity and learning how to manage people is key.

The key to business management is to maximize productivity. However, while management theory does aim towards getting a group of entities to achieve a certain goal, it does not necessarily achieve in making people more productive towards this cause. Times are shifting rapidly and the loss of key gurus, like Peter Drucker, in recent times, bears certain implications. The key contribution in having management theory lies in what has been achieved by the differing schools of thought within our history. This may serve as a guide, but one must also bear in mind that management is not just a science, but also an art.

There are many benefits to knowing management theory. First of all management theory doesn't just teach someone how inspire employees to be more productive, it also shows managers how to be good bosses. It is key for them to know how to deal with issues that may exist in the workplace. Managers have to efficiently deal with these issues and simultaneously maintain a stable or improving level of productivity. With management, you have to balance a multitude of tasks daily and being familiar with management theory can help greatly.

What are the advantage and disadvantage of delegation?


The advantage of true delegation is that it alleviates you from having to micro manage your employees. It allows top management to allocate the proper task or objectives out to the right employees that are capable of handling the task at hand.


The disadvantages of delegation is that it can be easily misused and go from properly delegating task to using traditional methods of management (demanding the work get down without seeking feedback). Another con maybe that the person you delegate the task to may not be able to achieve the goal as quickly or as effectively as you can. You also have to learn to delegate but not blur the line into micro managing.

What are the implications of Perception to management?

Managerial implication - Organizational Behavior

Perception in business situation:

1) Perception and motivation: perception of the workplace plays a major role in motivation. Suppose an employee is experiencing some unexpected money trouble. Because of her disposition (she is worried) and the salience of money (it is unusually important to her at the moments), she will be especially sensitive to issues of compensation. Through projection, she may assume that everyone in the organization also cares mainly about money. A large pay raise given to another employee will seem frustrating and will intensity her efforts to get a pay raise of her own, focusing even more attention on her own pay, the pay of others, and how they compare to one another.

2) Perception and hiring: hiring new employees can be affected by perception in many ways. Contrast or novelty in the job applicant can affect his or her chances of getting the job. The person doing the hiring may stereotype applicants on the basis of race or sex, or may allow the halo effect to color an overall perception of an applicant.

An interviewer's disposition during an interview or attitudes towards certain of the applicants' attributes can also affect the interviewer's perceptions of an applicant.

For example, a manager, who believes that people should dress professionally for a job interview, is likely to be unimpressed by an applicant who shows up wearing sunglasses and a flowered sports coat.

3) Performance appraisal: the appraisal of a subordinate's performance is highly affected by the accuracy of a manager's perceptions. The major areas of concern in this context are:

Managers may have tendencies to positively evaluate some employees. Because they are better liked, or are on favored tasks, or are particularly noticeable; and

Performance evaluation will be affected adversely because of halo effects,

4) Employee effort: an individual's future in an organization id usually not dependent on performance alone. In many organizations, he level of an employee's effort is given high importance. Just as teachers frequently consider how hard you try in a course as well as how you perform on examinations, so often do managers. An assessment of an individual's effort is a subjective judgment susceptible to perceptual distortions and bias. If it is true, as some claim, that "more workers are fired for poor attitudes and lock of discipline than for lack of ability" , then appraisal of an employee's effort may be a primary influence on his or her future in the organization.

5) Employee loyalty: another important judgment that managers make about employees is whether or not they are loyal to the organization. Despite the general decline in employee loyalty, few organizations appreciate it when employees, especially those in the managerial ranks, openly disparage the firm, furthermore, in some organizations, if the word gets around that an employee is liking at other employment opportunities outside the firm, that employee may be labeled as disloyal and so may be cut off from all future advancement opportunities. The issue is not whether organizations are right in demanding loyalty, the issue is that many so, and that assessment of an employee's loyalty or commitment id highly judgment.
