Bottom Up Approach is a Product of the Holistic Concept of Management
A holistic approach to management would of necessity incorporate the lowest rungs of the workforce in the management process. This would be because effective management denotes unity, i.e. shared values and shared responsibilities. That being so, the bottom up approach is a strategic move perceived by top management as absolutely required for management excellence. It is however, not necessarily a self-serving approach
, but more of a cultural and transformational imperative. This general understanding was given effect to in the investment bank I worked for up to 2005, by grouping or organising the entire workforce into three cultural/excellence teams/committees - the Transformational Team; the Quantum Leap Team and the Executive Committee (ExCo).
