6. Please read the case and answer the questions given at the end. Major Mohanty, a retired man from the army, joined company as MD in Sunrise LiMited, when the company was passing through a very bad period with declining production and productivity, heavy losses and low morale of the employees. Major Mohanty, after having made in-depth, logical and strategic studies of the situation,
immediately flagged on what he called 'operation rejuvenation', with exclusive thrust on production and productivity related issues. People related matters were of no consequence for him, for he believed that people, by and large, are dull, lazy, shirkers and non-starters and as such work should be extracted from them only through constant
watch, close supervision, complete and rigorous command and control. His style of functioning did yield some results, but before any impact could be seen, he abruptly
left the organisation, having got a better assignment in the United States of America.
Major Mohanty was immediately succeeded by Mr. Soni, a man who had made a name for his balanced approach to people and production through participative style of management in his immediate position as the Deputy MD of a large organization in a similar product line. He was, in fact, commended for his maximum concern for
both people and production, and for bringing about an ideal integration and harmony between the needs of the employees and those of production.

In the present company also, Mr. Soni continued his policies of participative management with equal concern for both production and people. With a view to reviving
the company back to health, he instituted some major changes. First of all, he decentralised the organisation so that the subordinates could exercise their discretion
and initiative in decision making, as also their imagination and creativity in performing other managerial functions. Further he empowered the junior managers to incur
expenditure upto an approved limit without seeking prior approval of the higher management. The communication system was also improved to facilitate free flow of
upward and downward communication.

Mr. Soni also adopted several measures to reduce costs and wasteful expenditure. He banned donations to charitable institutions, but increased the amount being spent on the welfare activities of the employees.
