  Discussion Top

One of the factors affecting organizational health, mastery of time and the optimum use of the time. Alec MacKenzie and Alan Liqin qualitative researchers believe that the most valuable asset of an organization its employees and are the most valuable asset of a man that has a very short life time has. [7] Time management, process management to resolve issues effectively meet organizational objectives through effective and efficient use of scarce resources in a changing environment. [8] Effective manager is one who has high performance and human resource unit is well maintained. [9] Time management is the efficient use of the time source is one of the limited resources and available at each person, that unlike a lot of other sources to provide the specific amount he has been laid off and the possibility of its transmission from one person to another or to buy and sell does not exist. [10] Kanlu in relation to the effective use of the time of managers proposes:

  • Use of entrusting
  • Practice saying no
  • More work
  • Prioritize tasks.

Seek help from others as counselors. [11] Mackenzie believes that, "One of the aspects of time management is to control its complexity makes it difficult for some. Time Management of elements emerged that these elements are linked to each other". [12]

Using expert research time management, time management skills can be divided into two general categories, individual skills and organizational skills are separate. Individual skills include some general patterns of behavior that most ordinary people's personal lives and their family's use of your time and management and other categories of organizational skills time management that is just dedicated to the people that are responsible for the management of an organization and the purpose of organizational skills; Those are skills that a manager in the efficient use of time and to achieve organizational goals and shall apply in relation to the performance of their professional duties. The environment in which these skills are used, Institutional environment and administrative director. These skills include six categories are as follows: Setting goals, prioritizing goals and activities, operational planning, entrusting, communication management, session management. [13]

The entrusting of the admin part of your authority to transfer staff. [14] Entrusting authority and responsibility makes organizations more effectively work. inexperienced managers often have little time And his most The remaining work they are doing in overtime, With the mistaken notion that this action is the only way to run and do things, While experienced managers who have learned how to delegate tasks to others and precise control of the actions, Sometimes its best to promote their use. Anyone who takes the responsibility of doing the task should be tailored to accomplish its responsibilities, authorization is. [15]

When the responsibility is devolved to his manager and the lower, in some cases because of field practice of certain activities, the achievement of results, Time schedule, the power that is required to perform the work and the way to measure performance is to arrive at an agreement. [16]

The organizational system of the collection of interdependent elements that act as a total. The man in organization is the most basic role of play and they are the ones who make your organization a human existence. Such concepts as metaphors organization to the organism, concepts such as adaptation and organizational flexibility, health and improve the Organization and organizational life time in the management and organization literature Common makes. [17] Mathew Miles the first theorist to organizational health, organizational health defined in 1969. In his view, organizational health refers Viability and survival of the organization in its environment and its compatibility and upgrade and expand its ability to adapt. [15] Matthew Miles dimensions of organizational health in as follows:

The order of merit communication, information, skills and knowledge in the field of technical and human relations. [19]

Participation of employees in an organization involved in decisions related to the organization. [15]

Use of resources

Applying the Organization's staff in the resources are shared, but work independently of them. In other words, all those things that they are present to do, and each of their tasks to the optimal way to do a certain activity for up to more than the enterprise to fruition. [15]


Cooperation and assistance of all members of the Organization to achieve a common goal. [20]


Independence means that the employee far from the unreasonably pressures of the environment, to take decision in order to achieve organizational goals. [21]


The spirit alive and joyful refers to a mood and suggests a commitment and dependence to a common goal and seriousness and trying to fulfill it. [15]


Innovation is the purpose of expressing the opinions and theories of everything that is new. [19]
