Business organizations are those legal entities that engage themselves in the production of a good or service with the intention of selling it for a profit and are much more focused on the long run survival in achieving organizational goals such as profitability, shareholder satisfaction, market share and share price growth, corporate governance, sustainability, market leadership and so on. However the modern conceptualization of the business organization as a paradigm that sets trends to be followed by societies in which they operate thus influencing the very behavioral dynamics of the members of those societies, is far more revolutionary and thought provoking.
It's common practice to construct contingency theoretical and conceptual management frameworks in controlled situations. Thus this framework would encompass a series of endogenous and exogenous variables such as management related conceptual paradigms - management process planning, Human Resource Management (HRM) function, leadership roles, work schedule preparation, quality management function, marketing planning and other related functions. The subsequent framework would engender a theoretically determined structure of aims thus bringing up and addressing related issues. McDonald's has adopted an admixture of employee motivation, organizational leadership and team effort building approaches at its culturally varied network of restaurants in North America and the rest of the world.
George Ritzer (2007) used the term "McDonaldization" in his book "The McDonaldization of Society" for the first time in 1993. According to him social transformation processes can assume such extreme characteristics like that of a fast food restaurant. The contemporaneous paradigm of thought attributed to McDonald's by Ritzer is of theoretical and conceptual significance in the context of the evolving organizational culture. In the first instance the organization's ability to leave an imprint on the societal transformation process by enticing its members to adopt the former's characteristics would inevitably have an impact on the long term organizational outcomes that concern both the society and the organization. McDonald's has become a way of life for some Americans. The same is true for many others in other continents. For instance Asians are highly influenced by McDonald's in their food habits. This subtle and yet highly controversial acculturation process has been at the heart of the McDonaldization of society.
Business organizations operate in their respective environments as determined by organizational structure, culture, leadership, strategic competitive environment and a host of other internal and external influences such as the regulatory framework, PESTEL and SWOT environments. Given the degree of influence under these circumstances, each organization adopts its own leadership style with a view to achieving these organizational goals such as profits, market share growth, higher share prices, quality improvements, brand loyalty, sustainability, benchmarks and so on. These organizational goals can be divided into short term goals and long term goals. Organizational leadership and team building skills play a very significant role here.
2.1. Leadership styles
There are many different leadership styles in the modern business world and almost every one of them has a particular reason or reasons for its existence. It
