Description

In the classic sociological sense, an organization such as a public utility commission is a social unit consisting of specific groupings constructed and reconstructed deliberately and with forethought to achieve specific goals. These organizational groupings determined on the basis of rational divisions of labor, power, and communication are designed with the objective of placing individuals into positions where they are expected to make the largest contribution towards achieving the organization`s goals. It is reasonable then to conclude that proponents of the classical view had in mind a readily identifiable common ground among the organization`s members that the organization exploits as ... continued below

Description

In the classic sociological sense, an organization such as a public utility commission is a social unit consisting of specific groupings constructed and reconstructed deliberately and with forethought to achieve specific goals. These organizational groupings determined on the basis of rational divisions of labor, power, and communication are designed with the objective of placing individuals into positions where they are expected to make the largest contribution towards achieving the organization`s goals. It is reasonable then to conclude that proponents of the classical view had in mind a readily identifiable common ground among the organization`s members that the organization exploits as it selects its goals. Recently, it has been argued that metaphors are an acceptable shorthand for this common ground that provides an insight into the types of personnel an organization would find most suitable for assisting its efforts to reach its goals. This report is one of a series of reports on the transformation of public utility commissions. Previous reports in the series have focused on the transformation of a commission`s culture, roles, and activities. This report focuses on the staffing dimension of the personnel mix needed to support these changes.
