Ittner-Larcker's Organizing Framework Ittner and Larcker use a Value-Based Management (VBM) Framework, that according to Zimmerman, was distilled from consulting practice (See the VBM Graphic ). He contends that although it resembles various theories, it seems better suited for ...

Classical organization theory evolved during the first half of this century. It represents the merger of scientific management, bureaucratic theory, and administrative theory. Frederick Taylor (1917) developed scientific management theory (often called “Taylorism”) at the beginning of this century. His theory had four basic principles: 1) find the one “best way” to perform each task, 2) carefully match each worker to each task, 3) closely supervise workers, and use reward and punishment as motivators, and 4) the task of management is planning and control.

Fiedler's Contingency Theory of Leadership

Managerial leadership has influenced organizational activities in many ways. These influences include motivating subordinates, budgeting scarce resources, and serving as a source of communication. Over the years researchers have emphasized the influences of leadership on the activities of subordinates. These emphasis by researchers led to theories about leadership.

More than 400 studies have since investigated this relationship. The leadership style is the consistent system of ...
