Massproduction has multiple advantages in the manufacturing sector. Asdemand for products goes higher, manufacturers resort to the solution(Daft, 2013).

Iconquer with teaching of craft technology in business school. Sincemanagement, has the final decision, their expertise and experiencewith knowledge of craft technology can help them in perceivingbusiness designs.
Ineither agree nor disagree that formal training is more importantthan experience. The two go hand in hand. There are situations whereone outweighs the other. Nevertheless, Daft, (2013) asserts thatformal training brews experience. Moreover, in a problem setting, ajudgment made by well-trained and experienced people is perceived asthe best call. The exponential growth of data and informationprocessed by organizations can overwhelm decision-making. As much ashigh-level managers will have limited interaction with otheremployees, Daft (2013) asserts that elements of face-to-faceinteractions cannot be phased out completely. Furthermore, I agreewith the citing that the manager can adopt an expert locator system.Such a system ensures that people can find the assistance they needwith ease.
Youhave indicated that busting bureaucracy approach has helped somecompanies. However, it should not hinder the growth of the business.It is vital to teach the no growth philosophy as Spors (2009)condones businesses that do not grow. In the final part of employinga biblical worldview in business management, I agree that with havingGod’s glory as we engage in any task makes our intentions be ofbenefit for all. Keeping focus while asking for divine guidance showscommitment and earns trust from other colleagues.
