What are the Modes of Management?
The 4 modes of management, identified by Choo (1991), demonstrate the process for how managers analyze a company and the external environment.
Back to: STRATEGY & PLANNING
These modes demonstrate the strategic analysis process:
- Undirected viewing: The manager observes the external (competitive) environment without a predisposition with the purpose of identifying any signs of change. This is an information gather stage carried out in an informal and unfocused manner.
- Conditioned viewing: The manager observes the external environment with predisposition or conditioning cause by his or her beliefs, experience, exposure (heuristics). The information gathered in this phase tends to be focused on a particular issue.
- Enacting: The manager observes the environment with the purpose of identifying any effects or results from an induced change in the environment (such as new technology, the introduction of a new product, or the entrance of a new competitor). Information is gathered in a more organized (learning-by-doing) process. The manager tries to identify the cause-and-effect attributes of her actions.
- Formal search: The manager undertakes and organized and systematic approach to retrieve information about a particular issue or element of the external environment. This generally requires assembling and Information about the environment for analysis or comparison. This process is generally carried out without predisposition.
