Bottom-up Approach: a Way to Sustain Organizations
Agnes Nkatha, Student (MBA), Kenya, Member
I am a strong proponent of bottom-up approach because it does not only motivates the employees
but also ensures they strongly own
the organization's activities and and its future.
My experience has largely been on top-down which though as argued may serve in certain circumstances, especially where quick decisions are to be made; it nevertheless denies the organization the richness of shared decisions.
When a decision is made bottom-up, even if things don't work as expected, there are are no blames and pointing of fingers
Instead, everybody is prepared to go back to the drawing board and search for more workable solutions!
