Contingency Approach to Management by Exception
TSE Pak Hoi Isaac (Dr.), Professor, China, Member
I agree with your prudential approach to application of MBE. There shall be a prerequisite in that the middle management has been properly set up with competent people to handle all incidents near to routine operation, instead of a team of people fighting fire everyday.
There are times that top management should visit close to the factory level and to talk close to the front line staff, and there shall be other time that management should appreciate the corporate work from a distance to link up with the wider perspective of new social needs that fit the existence of the corporation in near future -- for expansion of business.
