The five ideas about the management challenge facing organizations that I have identified are the following:

–         Having the right people in the management team – The organization needs to have the right people to survive in the business world (Morgan, 2006).

–         Supervising and motivating employees – Motivating of employees can happen if the organization is a learning organization (Morgan, 2006).

–    To always be improving (Morgan, 2006).

–    Adjusting to changing business environment (Morgan, 2006).

            –    Technological challenges – like security for the information processed (Werlinger,

                 Hawkey & Bennosov, 2009).

The prevailing image of an organization is organization is like an organism.  It needs to survive in the business world (Morgan, 2006).  After reading Morgan’s book I have learnt a lot.  I learnt that an organization is like a machine where it needs people to operate it. Also I learnt that an organization is like a brain, it needs to continuously be thinking of new ways to improve. This way the organization can improve themselves and the community around them.

The management challenges facing individuals I have identified are all human beings have needs like physiological, safety, social and esteem. When one need is not met they strive for the other.  For example when one employee does not sleep the previous night because they were partying, I have seen them come and buy the Red Bull drink to keep them active.  Other times I have seen how people steal when they lack money. An employee needs safety at the place they work.  Also an employee needs to be appreciated for what they do.

Other management challenges facing an individuals are learning technology.  Some people are not used at working with the computer so they constantly make mistakes.  For this the organization needs to create a learning culture whereby people can be always learning new things (Morgan, 2006).
