    Principles of Management

    1. Principles of Management are Universal

      *Management principles are applicable to all kinds of organizations – business & non business.
      *They are applicable to all levels of management.
      *Every organization must make best possible use by the use of management principles.
      *Therefore, they are universal or all pervasive.

    2. Principles of Management are Flexible

      *Management principles are dynamic guidelines and not static rules.
      *There is sufficient room for managerial discretion i.e. they can be modified as per the requirements of the situation.
      *Modification & improvement is a continuous phenomenon in case of principles of management.

    3. Principles of Management have a Cause & Effect Relationship

      *Principles of management indicate cause and effect relationship between related variables.
      *They indicate what will be the consequence or result of certain actions. Therefore, if one is known, the other can be traced.

    4. Principles of Management – Aims at Influencing Human Behavior

      *Human behavior is complex and unpredictable.
      *Management principles are directed towards regulating human behavior so that people can give their best to the organization.
      *Management is concerned with integrating efforts and harmonizing them towards a goal.
      *But in certain situations even these principles fail to understand human behavior.

    5. Principles of Management are of Equal Importance

      *All management principles are equally important.
      *No particular principle has greater importance than the other.
      *They are all required together for the achievement of organizational goals.

    What is Motivation ?

    Motivation is the word derived from the word ’motive’ which means needs, desires, wants or drives within the individuals. It is the process of stimulating people to actions to accomplish the goals. In the work goal context the psychological factors stimulating the people’s behaviour can be –

      *desire for money
      *team work, etc

    One of the most important functions of management is to create willingness amongst the employees to perform in the best of their abilities. Therefore the role of a leader is to arouse interest in performance of employees in their jobs. The process of motivation consists of three stages:-

    A felt need or drive
    A stimulus in which needs have to be aroused
    When needs are satisfied, the satisfaction or accomplishment of goals.
    Therefore, we can say that motivation is a psychological phenomenon which means needs and wants of the individuals have to be tackled by framing an incentive plan.

    Re: Disability as a barrier

    Policy implications and guidelines for addressing disability as a barrier

    Learners who experience barriers to learning as a result of disability should be welcomed in ordinary school environments provided that the necessary support is in place for learners to achieve their full potential. Teams that include parents, teachers and other relevant professionals should establish the nature and extent of support needed by the learner. Below are a few examples of how the system could be modified or changed to meet different kinds of support that individual learners may require:

    • Modified access to buildings e.g. ramps, adapted toilets and speaker systems in where applicable.
    • Brailed signage on doorframes, passages and outbuildings.
    • Enlarged print.
    • Appropriate assistive devices e.g. Braillers, hearing aids, tape recorders, splints, adapted computers, wheelchairs, walkers, modified tricycles and standing frames.
    • Therapeutic intervention.
    • Learner based and learner paced teaching.
