Decentralized Decision-Making: One of the primary missing factors to be observed in Electra Products is decentralized decision making as this will take employees consideration and feedbacks into decision-making model. This will help them to incorporate employee’s feedbacks into the business model and this will only be possible by taking into consideration of what employees have to share with the management. Delegation of authority– Employee Empowerment: As recommended by the management, employee empowerment should be introduced through delegation of authority. In this way, employees will be held responsible for their actions and responsibilities and this will make them accountable. Employees will start to take responsibilities of all their duties and actions and the increased accountability will start to bring improvement and flexibility in the corporate structure.Special Focus on OB issues: All aforementioned OB issues depict that company has not paid attention towards them that has provided them the margin to grow and become hazardous for the company. As now, it is essential to analyze and evaluate all of them and decide as how these issues can be resolved in a way that it serves in the best interest of the company over time. For instance, when Barbara was called in to discuss her plans and strategies, she was largely criticized by other department members, violating her rights and privacy.
CEO should have called her privately and listened to her concerns and suggestions in a peaceful and private environment where there is no intervention by other employees. This will motivate her by generating a feeling of association and recognition by the management, as she will start to consider herself as an employee highly valued by the management. Any criticism and suggestions should be saved for a later period for analysis and evaluation.To conclude, we can realize that Electra Products have been under major challenges and issues as the company has overlooked several OB and communication issues over the years that has led them to the downfall. The company is now facing intense competition on both domestic and international forum and several reasons could be held accountable for this problem. But now, they are concerned in revamping the structure of the company through strategies such as power delegation, employee empowerment and decentralized decision making. They have a vision ahead that will help them to re-emerge in the market as a stronger and a more customer oriented brand over time.
