Grid is an oldie but a goodie
David Taylor
Although Blake's and Mouton's Grid was developed in the 1960's I think it captured the very essence of how to assess managers.
Most organisations assess managers against getting the TASK done against time (the HOW) and of course this is what generates the value for the organisation. With modern well educated intelligent staff, however, managers need to also be concerned for how they engage the staff /PEOPLE (the HOW). Our Organisation's Performance Management System assesses against 1. Task and 2. Behaviours=concern for People, and thus the Grid would be perfect to use in assessing how managers are fairing in achieving a 'balance' between these two fundamental issues.

Validity of Managerial Grid Model

Scholars draft their theories on the basis of their experiences and assumptions. Managers validate the theories and accept them if they seem to be working for them. All theories may not work all the time. But their importance can be judged by someone who has similar experience.
