Study about Implementation of a Standard Management Outcomes System: Thailand
Abstract: Thai government established standards of Thai public management and public service outcomes that will lead to an achievement of total system outcomes in the public sector. It’s achievements and factors affecting the implementation are questions addressed in this study. Results of the study found that the implementation of PSOís data and participation systems of the CDD caused an improvement in the standard of working systems. Both efficiency and quality of work had been increased. Registered to implement PSO work units have had dramatic reductions in concerned work unitsí complaints, significant reductions in using government budget and increased response rates to peopleís demands and expectations. Characteristic of a learning organization, perception in PSO standards, executive support, participative management, performance improvement experience, regulation used in work are significantly affecting officialsí satisfaction in the work improvements caused by PSO implementation.
Introduction: PSO (Public Sector Standard Management System and Outcomes) policy is a significant innovative public policy that aims to establish standards of Thai public management and public service outcomes that lead to an achievement of total system outcomes in the public sector. Success in PSO policy implementation is regarded as successful implementation in the entire public sector. All government organizations are required to develop standard outcomes. This study aims to find out the outcomes the CDD (Community Development Department) has achieved from the intervention of PSO implementation. Major factors that significantly contribute to the implementation and their effect are identified, and measures those support the implementation are suggested. Data system and Participation system of PSO standards are scope of study. keep reading…
Increasingly, good practice points to incorporating stakeholder engagement activities into a company’s environmental and social management system. In practice this means making its management systematic by integrating it with core business activities. To achieve this, managers will need to identify critical points in the life of the project where stakeholder engagement will be needed, and determine who will deliver these actions and how they can be integrated with core business functions. This involves trying to work out how best to deliver and integrate a number of different aspects of engagement discussed in the previous sections, including:
ongoing stakeholder analysis and the assessment of stakeholder concerns from a griskh perspective
the hiring and training of community liaison officers
consultation processes designed to meet the companyfs own policies and/or compliance requirements of lenders and regulators
input and suggestions received from stakeholders on project design and proposed mitigation measures
grievance mechanisms that capture and respond to stakeholder concerns
the involvement of local stakeholders in project monitoring
A Case Study about a Grassroots Innovation Pipeline within a Large Software Company
Abstract: Establishing a grassroots innovation pipeline has come to the fore as strategy for nurturing innovation within large organizations. A key element of such pipelines is the use of an idea management system that enables and encourages community ideation on defined business problems. The value of these systems can be highly sensitive to design choices, as different designs may influence participation.
We report the results of a case study examining the use of one particular idea management system and pipeline. We analyzed the content, interaction, and participation from three creativity challenges organized via the pipeline and conducted interviews with users to uncover motivations for participating and perceptions of the outcomes. Additional interviews were conducted with senior managers to learn about the objectives, successes, and unique nature of the pipeline.

A Study of Project Based to Matrix Organisation: Rapidly Expanding Generic Pharmaceutical Company in New Zealand
Abstract: The company under investigation (Beta) is rapidly growing which necessitated an organisational restructure in the Research and Development (R&D) department from project based to matrix style. A matrix structure is considered to have the capacity to sustain future company growth while retaining or improving R&D productivity and efficiency. Currently, there is no defined operational management system for the newly implemented matrix organisation in the main case company under study. Moreover, little empirical research has been achieved on how to operationally manage a matrix organisation and minimise potential matrix challenges.
The purpose of this thesis is to identify best practice for the operational management of a matrix organisation design within a generic pharmaceutical company. To achieve this, the implementation and managerial challenges of a matrix organisation were investigated. To answer the research questions, semi-structured interviews were undertaken with employees from the main case company under study (Beta), and one participant each from two smaller complementary cases: Gamma and Delta. Additionally, one key informant experienced with matrix implementation and management was interviewed.
This session will provide an overview of the compensation management process for businesses and organizations where business strategies and expected outcomes drive the total rewards compensation systems, options and packages. Participants will view a high level planning, implementation, outcomes and control chart and a more detailed compensation management process chart related to total rewards processes that support and influence business strategies and expected outcomes.
This session will emphasize the importance of base/core compensation management components as the foundation for an effective and transparent total rewards program. A foundational compensation management system will include consistent, comprehensive and compliant job descriptions that described the positions required to implement and achieve business/organizational strategies and expected outcomes which are measured by performance/evaluation management processes..
