Many organizational and structural changes are common with new leadership. Newly formed team leadership also brings many advantages and disadvantages to it. Participatory (participative) management is a phenomenon where employee’s opinion is also considered and taken into account for decision making. It is based on the notion that when the employees invest their time and work hard at the workplace, he/she should be given an opportunity to participate in the decision-making activities such as setting goals, determining work schedules and making suggestions. Participative management, however, involves more than letting employees take part in making decisions. It involves management treating, considering and respecting the employee’s ideas and suggestions. Four processes affect participation; they are:
1. Information sharing: This is concerned with keeping employees informed about the economic status of the company.
2. Training: This involves increasing the skill levels of employees and contributing development chances that allow them to use new skills to make effective decisions regarding the organization as a whole.
3. Employee decision making: This can come in various forms and can vary from determining work schedules to deciding on budgets or processes.
4. Rewards: This should be linked to suggestions, ideas, and performance.
