    Description of Task
    Please answer all the following questions based on Weeks 2, 3, 4 and 5 and submit your answers through Turnitin by Tuesday 12th at 9am.
    Answers to each question should be around 250‐300 words. Please use your textbook and journal articles to support your answers.
    1.        On page 49 there is a quote from Bendix that defines "managerial ideology." Dissect the meaning of this quote and state the meaning of managerial ideology in your own words (as if you were explaining it to someone else). Which of Morgan's metaphors is most closely associated with this concept?
    2.        Rational‐bureaucratic organizations are supposed to develop the best means to achieve their goals. Based on your reading of Chapter 5, what would you say are some of the obstacles to making the "best" decisions about ways to reach a goal or solve a problem? Do some organizations have a more difficult time with this than others? What kinds of goals or problems do they deal with?
    3.        Do you think the term used by Barnard ‐‐ "common moral purpose" ‐‐ is a good way to describe what happens in work organizations? Why or why not?
    4.        The transformation of organizational forms has given rise to a variety of paradoxical demands. For example, organizations want to achieve both economies of scale and economies of scope; they want to specialize yet be flexible. What do each of these separate demands mean for organizing and managing? Why they all are desired? How can they peacefully co‐exist?
