HR Management

Postby shaibajit Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:19 pm

You are a project manager in a strong matrix organization. A team member on the project is consistently delivering her work packages late and below the required quality standards. The issue has been discussed with her several times already but no improvement has been visible. As the project manager you decide that it is time to employ coercive power. What measure will you implement?

You punish her by removing the privilege to work from home for two days per week
You bargain with her to give her better assignments if she performs
You discuss the situation with her line manager
You ask the human resources department to step in

Correct Answer is A. But should we go for Punishment or Inform her Line Manager?

I think Punishment is not Suggested to solve the issue like this. Discussion or forcing can be done. As both of them are not in the answer option. Better go with elimination. As the question mentioned to use coercive (formal) power his manager can be contacted to force him work!

Further clarification will be much appreciated!
