Grid Training and Development


Proposed by Blake and Mouton
Also known as managerial grid
Aims at attaining much more than the

development and growth of the individual


managers.
It is the technique which integrates individual,
team and organizational development.

Contd.
this model depicts two prevailing concerns

found in all organizations concern for


productivity and people.
MG helps the managers in evaluating their
concern for people and productivity. It also
stresses the importance of team
management leadership styles.

Stages of Managerial
Grid
1) Training

The mangers learn about grid concepts


and how they are applied in week long
seminars. After appropriate instructions,
these key managers will work to implement
the grid programme through out the
organization.

2) Team development
Members of the same department are brought together to

discuss how they are going to attain 9 9 position on the


grid.

3) Intergroup development
Marks the beginning of overall organizational development
There is a shift from micro level of individual and group

development to a macro level of group organizational


development.
The main focus is on improving co- ordination and
cooperation among work groups
Inter group tensions are dealt with openly and joint
problem solving procedures are adopted

4) Organizational goal setting


The participants contribute to and agree up on

the important goals of the organization.


A sense of commitment and self control is
instilled in the participants as the managers
and subordinates work together through out
the organization

5) Goal attainment
The participants attempt to accomplish the

goals which they set in the fourth stage.

6) stabilization

All the efforts from stage 1 to 5 are evaluated

and critical analysis are made and in the light


on this various programmes may be
redesigned.
