The subject of organizational management is broadly defined as the application of techniques in order to efficiently execute an organization’s operations. With companies continually becoming more competitive with each other, tricks and techniques used in managing a company become much more important in order to gain a competitive edge. Since an organization must manage both its physical capital and human labor, the application of organizational management can be divided into two subcategories: organizational behavioral management and organizational project management.

Organizational Behavioral Management

Organizational behavioral management is the management of human labor in order to provide better benefits and greater efficiencies in employee’s work. The application of organizational behavioral management is also known as human resources management. Human resource managers are responsible for all aspects of maintaining an employee.

First, human resource managers may be responsible for an organization’s hiring process. Recruitment specialists are required to be adept at networking and maintaining contacts. These HR specialists screen, interview, and test potential applicants.

Second, human resource managers are required to maintain constant relationships with the organization’s employees. Making sure payroll is up-to-date, determining end-of-year bonuses, resolving workplace conflicts are all aspects of an efficient workplace and happy workforce. Maintaining relationships above the typical employee to employee relationships is important for this aspect of the job.

Third, as the link between the corporation and its employees, it is the HR department’s responsibility to align the company’s goals with its employee’s incentives. To accomplish this, staying up-to-date with the company’s goals and business practices are important. For example, HR departments research employee benefit programs training classes to improve the capabilities of its employees.

Organizational Project Management

Organizational project management involves the execution of an organization’s values and goals. Organizational project managers, in contrast to human resource managers, are involved with an organization’s physical assets instead of human assets.

An project manager may be in charge of an organization’s financial portfolio. In managing financial portfolios, project managers may analyze monthly cash flows in order to cover the costs of operations.

Project managers may also be in charge of an organization’s program management. In implementing strategies for new programs, it is important for project managers to understand the company’s values and goals. For example, a program management for a sustainability-focused company must keep in mind the organization’s carbon footprint in planning for a specific project.
