1) What do you understand by Division of Labour?

The organisation involves more than one person. In such a case, each person has to understand his role
and position. Thus, the organisation has to list activities and divide these. It is the division that
predominates the organisation structure from a man to a group, enabling everyone to contribute. Any
division promotes individual independence and makes him less dependent on others.
2) What do you understand by levels in organisation/
Levels in an organisation are notional and may vary but generally these are divided into three parts such
as operational, middle management and top level. The operational level work is to implement, that of
middle management level is taking decisions with the policy laid out and that of the top level is deciding
policy and strategies for implementation.
3) What is Vrooms Theory of Expectations?
Victor H. Vroom believed that people will go for a goal if they find it is worth the efforts involved in doing
so. Thus, they will be motivated to the extent its value (valance) is worth the expectancy (drive) to achieve
it (Force = valance x expectancy). If people conceive that it is difficult to achieve or it is not worth to
achieve, they will not have the drive or motivation to achieve. Thus, an individuals needs and motivations
are linked.
