PLANNING

a) Environment Scanning: -
The first and foremost issue is to scan the environment.
The organization remains updated and for that purpose it screens large amount of
information to anticipate and realize the changes in environment e.g. the organization
keeps on eye on what is going on in political situation of Pakistan and abroad where the
coast of raw materials are how much increase or decrease in it, how much construction is
going in the country as every new building requires meters what competitions and their
actions will affect the organization e.t.c.
b) Forecasting: -
Another issue for organization is to forecast the demand for meters to
deal with this the organization uses two of forecasting categories.

Quantitative forecasting

Qualitative forecasting methods include.


1) Time series analysis
2) Regression model
3) Econometric models
4) Substitution effect

Qualitative forecasting

1) Jury of opinion
2) Sales force composition
3) Customer evaluation

c) Allocation of Resources: -

An important issue is the allocation of resources in an


effectives and efficient way to achieve the organizational goals. SBEEC uses different
planning tools to allocate resources these are as follows

1) Budget: -
SBEEC made its budget on quarterly basis. Before every budget it evaluate
all problems of departments and then allocate recourses accordingly.
2) Scheduling: -
To determine what activities have to be done, the order in which they are
to be them, and when they are to be completed the SBBEC uses the following scheduling
devices.

GANTT Charts
A scheduling chart that shows actual and planned output over a period of time
Load charts
A modified Gantt chart that schedules capacity by entire departments or specific
resources.

PERT networking Analysis


A flow chart diagram showing the sequence of activities needed to complete a project and
time or cost associated with each

3) Breakeven Analysis: -

SBEEC uses breakeven analysis for the point at which total


revenue is equal to total cost and then on the basis of this breakeven analysis it set prices
of meter with suitable profit margin.

4) Linear programming: -

SBEEC also uses linear programming to evaluate profit


maximization and allocation of resources on that basis.

d) Project Management: -

SBEEC also uses project management e.g. it has taken the


projects of Tariq Garden (a new housing society) and within the given frame of time
budget and according to specification.

e) Scenario planning: -

The future is unknown especially in Pakistan due to political


instability the future situations are highly unpredictable to run business in such an
environment SBEEC use the scenario planning. The organization identifies different
possible scenarios ahead of time and plan according to make major adjustments in
strategies and operations.
ORGANIZATION
SBEEC is an organization, which is organic in its design, and
it has the following characteristics.

1) Work Specialization
SBEEC trained its lower employees to increase the productivity level. A
single process of meter manufacturing is divided into many steps. Every single step
requires different way of operating. A selected cluster of employees is trained to do a
particular step and hence the load of performing entire activities of the process decreases.

2) Departmentalization
To deal with the complexity of internal design SBEEC has departmentalized the
structure. They are as follows

3) Decentralization: -
The organization is decentralized and the employees can
also take part in the decision-making. It is more flexible and responsive due to the
nature of business it does.

4) Formalization: -
There is much formalization in the organization. Each and
every procedure is standardized and the behavior of all of the employees is guided by
rules and procedures.

5) Span of Control: -
The span of control of manager in SBEEC is very large and
a manager manages a number of people here.

6) Team oriented tasks: -


In SBEEC a team of different people from different
departments is made for a project or task and they are supposed to complete it in the
given time frame with the given specifications.

Leading

The senior manager Mr Tariq Javed told us that in his organization the democratic style
of leadership has been adapted so that the leader will hear the team's ideas and study
them, but will make the final decision. Team players contribute to the final decision thus
increasing employee satisfaction and ownership, feeling their input was considered when
the final decision was taken. When changes arises, this type of leadership helps the team
assimilate the changes better and more rapidly than other styles, knowing they were
consulted and contributed to the decision making process, minimizing resistance and
intolerance. He furthermore told us that An individual who is appointed to a managerial
position has the right to command and enforce obedience by virtue of the authority of his
position. However, he must possess adequate personal attributes to match his authority,
because authority is only potentially available to him. In the absence of sufficient
personal competence, a manager may be confronted by an emergent leader who can
challenge his role in the organization and reduce it to that of a figurehead. However, only
authority of position has the backing of formal sanctions. It follows that whoever wields
personal influence and power can legitimize this only by gaining a formal position in the
hierarchy, with commensurate authority.Leadership can be defined as one's ability to get
others to willingly follow. Every organization needs leaders at every level.

Controlling
Mr Tariq Javed told us that controlling is a four-step process of establishing performance
standards based on the firm's objectives, measuring and reporting actual performance,
comparing the two, and taking corrective or preventive action as necessary. Performance
standards come from the planning function. No matter how difficult, standards should be
established for every important task. Although the temptation may be great, lowering
standards to what has been attained is not a solution to performance problems. On the
other hand, a manager does need to lower standards when they are found to be
unattainable due to resource limitations and factors external to the business. Corrective
action is necessary when performance is below standards. If performance is anticipated to
be below standards, preventive action must be taken to ensure that the problem does not
recur. If performance is greater than or equal to standards, it is useful to reinforce
behaviors that led to the acceptable performance.

The control system of SBEEC has the following characteristics:

1. Control at all levels in the business

2. Acceptability to those who will enforce decisions

3. Flexibility

4. Accuracy

5. Timeliness

6. Cost effectiveness

7. Understandability
8. Balance between objectivity and subjectivity

9. Coordinated with planning, organizing and leading

• Having a diverse workforce is a business asset and opportunity, rather than a


problem to be avoided or defended against.
• SBEEC identify and realize the potential of the diverse knowledge, skills and
background of the workforce.
• No discrimination is made on the basis of age, ethnicity etc however no females
are allowed to apply for any post because of the nature of the product (it is labour
intensive and hence the working environment does not suits the Pakistani women
because of the society and religion.
• SBEEC have made such type of policies that are acceptable to everyone.

involved.

Corporate Social Responsibility

to be engaged in community welfare work and to support relevant causes.

was amongst the first to respond to the crisis. Relief Camps were set up in all major hospitals

and SBEEC Relief Teams were constituted to provide aid to the Northern Areas.
