Capco being the leading company has used this following management approaches in order to give high amount of competition to the rivals in the given market segment (Pacesila, 2014).
Classical management approach- This type of approach is highly used by the leading companies in order to incorporate and determine different policies and framework and providing a right set of objectives and goal to the stakeholder in their memorandum of association and article of association.

In the today’s changing environment Capco has to develop a good competitive advantage in order to give a right amount of competition to rivals. There are different ladyship styles that has described as below.
Autocratic leadership style- In this leadership style management and other team leaders take all the decision at their hand. As the name suggests this type of leadership gives ample amount of focus and inclination toward the leaders core intent and their core strength comprised of high level of caliber in the given subject matter. In Capco this type of leadership style is followed in the era of 2000. Some other organization focus on this leadership style and the data depicts that leadership style helps in avoiding high cost investment mistakes.
- Minimization of cost and employees hurdles
- Overcome the employees load and their core problems
- Generation of effective footsteps that could be followed by employees for the betterment of the company
- No amount of demoralization with the implemented work. ( Fowler, 2016).
Democratic leadership- This type of leadership provides a good amount of participation in the working system of the organization. Proper level of participation of employees in the decision making process is the core value point of this participating leadership style. This leadership style helps company in the following ways (Saeed, et. Al., 2014).
- Provide employees good amount of assistance in the working activities
- Helps company to take innovative ideas and plans of the employees in well identified manner.

Charismatic leadership- This type of leadership style focuses on the leader’s core strength. In this leadership style it is assumed that leaders in the company has sophisticated and outstanding views and critical understanding on the subjective matters. Leaders in this type of leadership style are very effective and outstanding in order to influence the employee’s behavior and working style. However in this type of leadership program employees sometime feel demoralized as their concern and their views are avoided by the leaders (Clargo & Tunstall, 2011).
Servant leadership- There is different type of leadership style various leaders and management in this leadership style focus on the employees working style. They assume that employee in the process system could more efficiently handle their task so it is better to follow their steps than to direct them. This leadership style gives the high level of motivation.
Transformational leadership- In this type of leadership style employee is motivated with the core intent and strength of the leader’s skills and their working style. This is deemed that what leaders shows is the actual standard path for the employees and leaders adopt the way that showcase the best interest to the employees and their motivation program.
3.2 Compare the application of two motivational theories (e.g. Maslow’s & Herzberg theories) within organizational setting?
It is the clear fact that employees are the key pillars in the organization proper running. Different type of working style and employees’ capacity and productivity are the main intent for the sustainable development of the company in the long run. In order to provide right amount of motivation to employees working several value chain of the company management has to use various motivational theory for the betterment of the company and enhancing the productivity of the company. Capco has understood the main objectives or base outcome of application of right amount of motivational theories given by different researcher by the time e.g. it provides a best grassroots in avoiding cost reduction, emergence of synergy, development of robust relation between employees and organization. There is seen that in the application of two motivation theories e.g. Maslow’s & Herzberg theories within organization has provided very much help in various sectors that could be described with the help of given fact. In the complete study of Maslow’s motivation theory regard with the complete complication in Capco has given me a sophisticated and clear idea that each and every employees in organization perform their works in order to accomplish their different separate needs and demands and if their needs do not get satisfied in timely manner then it may result into dissatisfaction, demoralization in work performance or other negative impact could be seen by the time. Maslow in his motivational theory has clearly depicts that employees in the organization is also human and likewise their demand and needs increases with the satisfaction of one need. It is fact that satisfaction of one need results into emergence of new demands and needs with the given criteria. This is the process that helps company to get all the work done on consistent basis from the employees simultaneously satisfying their needs and demand ( Porter, 2016).
In Herzberg motivational theory it is find that there are given some hygiene factors that tell that organization can never find set goal and objectives that showcase the best way to cater employee’s need and demand in order to motivate them for the working and increment of the productivity of the process channel. But there are fact that setting targets and performance chart may result into a motivational tools in the organization if employees archive them in highly manner. But some time setting higher standard and target and failure to archive such targets may result into demoralization of the employees in the working process.
Application of Maslow and Herzberg theory in Capo and its results- In the application of both Theories in Capco has found to be very much help in the different motivation program. Different level of needs and demand of the employees could be catered with the help of proper implementation of motivational theoriesin defined manner. In the implementation of methods depicts by Maslow theories Capco identify the different standard needs and demand of the employees that could be used as an adequate level of driver to increase the performance of the process system and employee’s individual working caliber. Whereas there are some employees and team leaders that are motivated with the help of Herzberg hygiene factors. Capco in order to make good level of motivation in the specified employees set standard targets and needs so that they could be strived to put their best level of efforts for achieving set targets and goal. In the accomplishment of set target company reward them various gifts and incentives some time promotion are found to be the best reward in this type motivational theories (Lacko, 2011).
3.3 Explain the necessity of managers to understand and apply motivation theories within the workplace?
With the wide range of study and sophisticated research program on Capco’s working style and other company tactics I could depict that organization is the complex set of activities that should be managed in well and effective manner otherwise different drastic results could be seen in the different time span of the company. Managers are the key drivers of the company and employee are the key pillars who are accustomed to act as per the direction set by the managers of the company. There are various necessity and need of manager to understand apply a right amount of motivational theories within the workplace (Giltinane, 2013).
Every employees in the company have their individual values and belief therefore in order to motivate employees in the several process managers has to understand which motivational theories will b effective in which process
- Different motivational theories such as Herzberg‘s need and demand completion theories Maslow‘s hygiene factors and F. Tyler employees self esteem motivation tools are the some of the example that needs to be observed by the mangers.
- A clear idea over motivational theories gives a complete process to managers so that they could provide best aid to the employees in completion of their needs and demand.
- Manager with the wide range of information about the employees perception and their way of behavior with different factors can make an easily bifurcation in the employees and their needs.
- Hygiene factors helps manager to set up a clear level of target and Maslow theories helps in cater employees need and demand in easy and sophisticated manner.
- These are the most imperative benefits that could be derived by the managers with the help of given motivational theories in today’s world.
4.1 Explain the nature of the groups and group behavior within CAPCO or your chosen organization?
Capco is the leading company that has been working since the very long time in the technical market segment. Various team members and group of employees are employed in order to accomplish set objective and goals of the company, in the organization and different process system there are two operation measures are found formal group of employees and informal group of employees. Formal group of employees are comprised of employees in the same process channel engaged in production of defined output. These are the group of persons who works for the proper functioning of the organization whereas on the other side there are group of employees covered in the informal group of members who are from different process system but meet at cafeteria, or other places for doing gossips and communicating immaterial information with each other. There is seen that both group of members are equally important for the accomplishment of set objectives as formal groups of persons discharge functions in efficient manner where as informal group of people helps in establishment of amicable behavior between each employees and provide hidden information in the management system of the organization (Wickramasinghe & Perera, 2014). Organization is the complex set of activities and comprised of various group of peoples such as forming, storming, norming, performing, adjourning and other group of members are incorporated at the different stages in the process working system. There are various advantages and disadvantages of various groups of employees in the organization
Provide a right amount of information and knowledge to the management level
Helps company to collect data that could be used as a development of troubleshooting program
Less costly and proving creation of innovative idea
Time consuming process
Hurdles in the increment of the productivity of the process
Makes employees leisure and talkative at the office premises
Development of negative behavior and bad impact on the process.
4.2 Discuss factors that may promote or inhibit the development of effective teamwork within CAPCO?
There are various factors that could be defined as below in order to showcase the real impact of these factors in the development of effective teamwork within CAPCO
- Effective communication- Team building is the process of getting work done with the help of employees employee‘s collected efforts. A good level of Communication is very much important in the team building and discharging assigned work in systematic manner

Management in order to overcome the burden of employees and to save their own time appoint different team leader in the various process system. They help employees to identify the best course of action to discharge assigned task.
- Team building efforts- this is the efforts made by each employee under the guidance of a team leader so that effective results could be derived.
There are various benefits of using an effective team work in the development of the organization such as its helps in the synergy, effective production, and development of amicable relation.
4.3 Evaluate the impact of technology on team functioning within CAPCO?
Organization has various functions to discharge so that a better level of world could be created for the better satisfaction of the clients worldwide. Capco has been showcasing a drastic change in its process system and technologies uses in all the operation of the business. This level of program has helped in creation of wide range of understanding on the uses of new technology and its impact on the development of core competency. In Capco various up level of technology has been used either it is in collection of data, observing employees behavior, development of automation in some fields of the process system and furthermore. With the help of this technology Capco has developed effective cross checking system so that hurdles and problems could be mitigated. Development of data management system, high level of security and artificial intelligence has proved to be very much helps in the team building of employees and their functioning in the organization. There are various drawbacks that could be seen with the effective implementation of newly generated technology in the company
- Effective use of ethnology results into the increasing dependency of the employee on each others.
- Technology has provided a great amount of increment in the employee turnover as experienced employees are very rigid to the changes and them fails to adopt new technology in the process working system.
- Uses of technology have shown drastic changes in the employees working style that generates confusion in the team working.
- Increasing use of technology has resulted into high level of risk in the data protecting system and dependency upon each employee to discharge own functions in the value chain activities of the organization.
With the help of this report I have understood the vast variety of information upon the organization behavior, culture, policies, and article and association of the company. Capco is the leading company coupled with the various set of activities and in order to manage all the functions in right manner company has to develop a standard set of structure in the organization internal environment. Now I would like to conclude my words by saying that organization behavior is completely dependent upon how organization has developed culture and organization structure for the betterment of the company.
