It lays a very deep and crucial impact on the overall functional capacity of a business firm that is operational in Uganda. The report will involve the scripted podcast on the various issues that are been faced by the Hydrogenertation (HG) in Uganda. Other than this, it will cover the reflective account, in support of the various podcasts that are been discussed above with the issues and solutions identified in the podcast.
Category 1: Organisational culture: Nepotism plays a very significant and crucial part on the overall operations of the organisation that will lay a very deep impact on the operations of the organisation. HydroGeneration will look after the appointing of Charles Martin on the project phase of the dam project in Uganda. This indicates the presence of the nepotism in the organisation. There may be many other managers, more efficient than Charles but the vice president, James Green. But, the high efficiency of Martin to finish the assigned project on the stipulated time frame and given budget showcase his effective management skills, which makes him ideal for getting appointed as the leader of the team working on the dam project. His skill set and ability to adopt the local culture and Ugandan ways of working make him ideal choice. This will involve the Deal and Kennedy Model which will help the firm to develop a better share of ideas about risk assessment and giving appropriate feedback.
Category 2: Leadership: The major reason being choosing him is that Martin has completed its projects in preliminary phase and that too with high satisfaction level. He has effectively managed it in stipulated time frame and in given budget, making him eligible to get selected for project (Berry, 2015.). Other than this, Mr. Green has seen that martin can perform all the task like establishing the office, hiring the work force, getting the items cleared through the customs, keeping a check on dam sight and maintaining the operational principles, philosophy and values of the organisation. Besides this he will also look after the functioning of keeping of records. He will use the behavioural approach of leadership at HG Uganda. This approach will help him to have a better idea about the functions he needs to perform and the better behaviour with his subordinate will help him to have a better relationship and understanding with each other.
Category 3: Motivation and HRM: Martin will look after the better handling of the work force consisting of foreigner engineers and local workers. Besides this, he will help the site engineers to get settled and comfortable with local lifestyle. He will motivate the work force to complete the work in the stipulated time to gain higher productivity and have a better share of the operations that will help in better handling of the different operations in a better way (Berry, 2015.). Besides this, Martin will look after the interviewing, selection, training and managing of the workers or the human resource that is been owned by the organisation. He will also maintain the cross cultural ethics. The organisation will work with multicultural team.
Category 1: National culture: The corruption can lay a significant impact on the overall operations of the company in a country. Thus, martin will see through the effective handling of the different functions of HG Uganda and its dam project (Bird and Mendenhall, 2016.). Other than this, he will look after the maintaining of the ethical practices that are been taken in consideration by the organisation. Although, the nation is highly corrupted, he will not let his organisation to get affected by the national culture to get affected by it. The Schein's layer's of culture will help in better growth and development of the organisational structure that will help in better handling of the different operations and handle the business operations of HG Uganda in a very effective way.
