Budgeting Assignment Analysis

Challenges The entire class was not simple and did not come without challenges some weeks. One of the biggest challenges that I had was with the budgeting assignment. I did not realize how many different parts there are for a budget for an organization. The simple line item budget, we did does not even include all that would be involved in producing a full budget for the organization. The financial part of an organization has more parts than just the cost of supplies and wages paid to the employees. The financial management process actually includes three different parts which include resource acquisition, resource disposition, and resource reporting (Lewis, Packard, & Lewis, 2012). There is not a simple budget that shows all of the …show more content…
After completing both of those items I have a much better understanding of how an organization has to have a solid management structure. Having poor organization design and structure can lead to contradictions and confusion. Some of the issues that can arise with poor organization design and structure are confused within roles, a lack of co-ordination among functions, failure to share ideas, and slow decision-making which can bring mangers unnecessary stress and conflict (Corkindale, 2011). The concept of organization design a structure I understood, but when it came to putting it all together with our human service organization, that is when I realized there was a lot more to it. These were only a few of the challenges I faced, but was able to overcome with just a little more review. The concept of designing my own human service program is what I will discuss …show more content…
Looking at how many different human service program there are out there it was a little overwhelming to think that I had to set up a program that was going to look like one of them. My thought was originally I was going to design a program that would be a general human service program that would be available to anyone that needed it. After looking at how big of a program that would be, I decided to scale it back some and focus on a program that I feel strongly about. Having dealt with foster care and the department of human services when I was growing up and with my stepdaughter, my heart went back to a program that would help children and families. The part that surprised me the most is that there are so many steps to set up a successful adoption and consultation agency. I learned so much just through the interviews in the first three weeks of the course about how there are different agency that do different things when it comes to adoption. Looking back now I did not know that there were agencies out there that are only there for the parents throughout the adoption process and do not work with placing the

    But, there are certainly some deficiencies. When you ask the employees to arrange a seat according to your needs, they don't pay enough attention to your request. You often have to make your own arrangement. According to the business ethics, an organization has to make sure that a company has enough resources and man power to positively respond to the need of every customer. But what I observed from my personal experience is that the actions of the employees were a violation of this ethical issue to some extent.…

    Because of my lack of communication skills and behavior in this case has led to difficulties in the work space. I know going around my manger to use my idea to get attention from the company was not wise. This resulted in mistrust and tension with my manger.

    I was able to evaluate myself based on a set of questions, and three people in my life who are in supervisory roles over positions I hold or held evaluated my leadership style as well. The results of the SLPI surprised me, especially because all of my rankings were lower than the ones my observers gave me. This was also interesting given that the week before I had a performance review with one of my supervisors who filled out my evaluation. She stated how I needed to improve on my confidence. I know the answers to questions I have, but I am not completely sure.…

    Failing to differentiate between management and leadership The organisation poorly differentiated between leaders and managers as highlighted even in their vision. The difference between managers and leaders lies in the conceptions they hold, deep in their psyches, of chaos and order. Managers embrace process, seek stability and control, and instinctively try to resolve problems quickly. Leaders, in contrast, tolerate chaos and lack of structure and are willing to delay closure in order to understand the issues more fully.. 3.1.9.

    For example, Garrison et al. (2012) stated that “the budgeting process provides a means of allocating resources to those parts of the organization where they can be used most effectively” (p. 343). Resources are allocated based on opportunity cost, which is a choice of options while making a decision (Boyd, 2012). In addition, firms can benefit from budgeting because it provides a benchmark to evaluate performance (Garrison et al., 2012; Horngren, Harrison, & Oliver, 2012). “In most companies, part of the manager’s performance evaluation depends on how actual results compare to the budget” (Horngren et al., 2012, p. 1053).…
