You are to write a Management Report providing analysis and recommendations about how a hairdressing salon called “Rock Paper Scissors” can be managed to success in the contemporary Australian environment. You are a management consultant hired by the owners of “Rock Paper Scissors” to help them better manage the salon.
You will focus on;
.the principles, models and theories of management that you have read about in the 12 week unit and how the hairdressing salon is planned, organised, lead and controlled;
.you will also discuss the external environmental factors affecting the hairdressing salon; and
.the contemporary management challenge that this presents.
An example of a management principle is “leaders are critical to the success of a hairdressing salon”. An example of a model may be the ‘Competing Values Framework’ and an example of a theory of management is ‘goal setting theory’. You are required to critically think (which means judge) the value and use of these principles, models and theories. The more critical thinking (ie judging) about these principles, models and theories provided in your Management
Critical thinking must be demonstrated in your Management Report. For example, you must show in your Management Report that you have deeply thought about or ‘critically thought’ how you are going to advise the owners to plan, organise, lead and control the hairdressing salon. Then you must demonstrate this ‘critical thinking’ when writing your Management Report using research (ie peer reviewed academic journals).
