    basically, management is following the right rules and regulations of management, and being able to work out and identify harzadous actions in an organisation, considering the workers and consumers safety and satisfaction. it is creating solutions to poorly managed environments. it is applying simple but effective ways of running management processes in an organisation.

    According the video clip, its important to follow procedures in an orderly fashion to prevent chaos in your working environment. If you’re not organised it could mean the end to your business. Your businesses reputation is determined by how well it is being managed.

    management has to do with raising productivity by means of getting more well trained staff, getting more clients for the specific organisation and getting more effecient equipment.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:08 pm #

    Management is about knowing how each department operates and how to engaged with the people that are under your authority.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:09 pm #

      Zama. I agree with you. What do you think is an appropriate way to engage with staff members under your authority?

    In my understanding, in order to manage the workflow of a business and/or organization correctly there is many processes and rules to follow. “Understanding the task to be executed, the order it is to be accomplished in, who is involved in the task(s), the system to be used and the rules that need to be followed.” In order for this to be effective COMMUNICATION in my opinion is key to successful management.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:11 pm #

      Laura. Wonderful comment. I agree with you. Communication is often one of the biggest causes for failure. Why do you think people fail to communicate effectively, especially in a working environment?

  7. mariam khan July 25, 2011 at 8:55 am #

    i think management is a manner or process in which a person or group of people manage work procedures by organising employees and the company in such a way that the company runs effeciently and the business becomes a success. in order for this to occur both managers and employees play an important role, and more importantly they both have proper communication channels.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:12 pm #

      Mariam. Thanks for your comment. I agree, managers and employees should have proper communication channels. What do you think those are? Could you give me an example?

    Work flow management is the way you run and and maintain your business. The way you organise yourself and your business complete effects the outcome. It can either make or break it. Without organization and planning their will be caos. This all relates to management basically.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:14 pm #

      Deidre. Thanks for this one. I agree. A business without proper management ends up in chaos. How does good management prevent chaos?

  9. Feroza July 25, 2011 at 4:49 pm #

    management is the proccess follwed by managers to control and organise objectives and goals that need to be met in order to maintain the smooth running of a company/orginisation. work flow managemnet is the process and procedures which enable tasks to be completed and with out work flow management the company will be in chaos.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:17 pm #

      Feroza, thanks for your comment. Smooth running is definitely what managers look to achieve. Can you think of things that effect the smoothness of the running of a business? What things make it chaotic?

  10. Cara July 25, 2011 at 11:20 pm #

    Without effective management, loss of income is pretty much guaranteed. By implementing effective management techniques such as simple, clear workflow operations, the business will run more smoothly, as shown in the clip. It’s also clear that the simpler management is kept, the more effective it can be. It doesn’t necessarily have to involve many people or procedures, as long as there is a clear system in place, it should be effective.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:20 pm #

      Cara. Very good. I like that you have picked up that management does not have to be complicated. In fact, the simpler the better. Often complicated management procedures actually defeats the purpose. Can you give me an example of this in our everyday society? Where are things complicated when they could be easy?

  11. Rugare July 27, 2011 at 12:07 pm #

    work flow management is the process in which an organisation operates. If these processes are not handled well , this will lead to customer dissatisfaction and many other related problems, as in the case of the first doctor. But as for the second doctor the processes were scaled, mantained and managed in a more efficient manner thus the productivity was raised, the costsmlowered and the consumer needs were met. At the end of the day every one was happy

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:23 pm #

      Rugare. Well done for picking up that good management actually influences profitability. The more complicated and messed up processes are, the more room for money to get lost or for costs to be increased. Tell me, how does a bad system influence the customer?

  12. Andrea July 27, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    Management, may it be good or bad, can not function without workflow. Keeping this in mind when runing a succsessful business it must be designed to be effective and be continiously regulated.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:24 pm #

      Andrea. Thank you for your comment. I agree, workflow is critical to business success. Tell me, you mention that a business should be continuously regulated. Could you elaborate on this?

      • Andrea Fourie August 2, 2011 at 1:24 pm #

        It could be done anually for instance, or if they wanted to be very effective every 6 months either internally or externally. Externally would be best – more objective I reckon…

        My objectives for the pasta company:
        – by 10:30 the lasanga sheets for 20 dishes needs do be done and drying.
        -at 10 the vegetables for the veg 5 lasange needs to be chopped and sauteed.
        – shaping of all the ravioli must be done before 11
        – selling of ravioli + lasange (veg and chicken) starts at 13:30

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:26 pm #

      Lwando. Thanks for your comment. I agree, management is key to running a business successfully. How have you found, in the practical food production classes, is management important to the success of getting the food out, and sold?

  14. leocardia ranga July 27, 2011 at 7:10 pm #

    wow..i really think people involved in the management of a business should be well educated so that they know how implementing effective workflow management can make a big difference in their management management is the process of implementing technology into the business..

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:29 pm #

      Leocardia. Thanks for your comment. I like that you have picked up that management could include integrating technology into the business.If technology will assist the productivity of a business, why not use it? Can you think of ways in which technology could be/ is integrated into a fast food restaurant to improve productivity?

    basically,management is very important in a business. workflow management is the procedures that needs to be followed inside the business in order for the business to be a success or running smoothly. If such procedures are not followed, there might be a ‘dent’ in the business. management also includes certain goals and objectives companies set that needs to be achieved at the end of a specific time to be sure that the business actually accomplish the goals set. the workflow also ensures that the business’ needs are kept constant and also in a way balanced.

    • dylancromhout July 27, 2011 at 9:31 pm #

      Anchan. Thanks for you comment. I agree, workflow management is important in keeping the business running smoothly. Tell me, how does it ensure that the business stays “balanced?” Could you elaborate for me please?

      • Anchan-Lee Fortuin August 4, 2011 at 10:20 am #

        Well, I think that if the specific goals are met, or if the management of the business is of such success, that the workflow for instance will be kept constant? the way in which they do certain things within the business. the business will stay balanced if a constant wokflow plan is achieved and by following correct procedures and regulations.

  16. Jade July 27, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    From the video i understand that workflow management is a process that all businesses need to run smoothly. Without the proper procedures being followed many things within the business can go wrong which can result in negative consequences. A successful business needs organization and a proper system in place to make sure the business operates as it should, money is being made and that everyone is kept happy.

    Depicting from the above video, I understand Management as being a key function in the smooth running of a business. The role of management is to ensure that a work place is well runned and maintained to receive the benefits it aims to as a business. The video also shows the major faults that occur from poor managment and how chaotic it can become, I think that management is thus an essential skill to enabling success in any work place.

    workflow management allows the customer to feel completely involved in the entire process and capable of getting answers to important questions in a timely fashion. In turn, this can increase company profits, as happy customers come back for repeat business.

    Workflow management also helps businesses find ways to improve their production or service process. By clarifying the roles of every employee within the process.
