Analysis Of Management Styles Of Vito And Michael Corleone
Managing any organization is a complex issue. That complexity increases when this organization is involved in illegal activities. Vito and Michael Corleone were leaders of their organization in two distinct times, environments and culture. Analysis of their methods of planning, organizing, leading and controlling increases the understanding of how these two men led their organization with distinct managing styles as depicted in the motion picture The Godfather Part II.
Planning is the management function concerned with defining goals for future organizational performance. Once these goals and objectives are determined, management can decide which tasks and resources will be needed to attain them. Vito Corleone started his organization from scratch. In doing so, his planning style was very centralized and in many ways, very traditional. He, along with his closest associates, such as his ?consiglieri?, made all the planning for the organization. Although Michael started using the same method of planning, further into his tenure as the leader, he slowly changed the paradigm of planning for his organization.
As an illustration of this, let us examine his venture in the gaming business. First, he started with a strong mission. At that time he thought the need to legitimize his business.
