Read the conversation below and say what theories of management style different managers participating in it support.

According to Theory “Y” employees should be given greater responsibility and involvement in decision – making freeing management time for other issues.

Managers supporting Theory “X” tend to distrust their employees and fail to delegate authority, tying up management time and reducing responsiveness to changing market conditions.

 

1st man: You know, I believe that we managers should have far more control over what employees do.
1st woman: You know, that’s exactly what I think. We need to know what work they are doing at every point during the day. That is the only rational way to organize an office today.
2nd man: I can’t say I share your view on that. My employees are not machines. They are human beings. In my experience you get work done far more efficiently if you allow employees to work at their own pace.
2nd woman: Now, that’s just what I was thinking. The important thing is to allow each individual to work at a certain number of tasks, but not to watch over them too closely. They do a better job that way.
3rd woman: I can see what you mean, but my experience shows that only certain employees can be left entirely alone. The rest need watching closely or else they waste the firm’s time. And they are here to work after all.
3rd man: May be, but don’t you think, there is a limit to how closely we should watch our staff? After all, I don’t know about you, but I only have one pair of eyes. I can’t watch 25 people all at once and do my work at the same time.
