Broken Windows Management in Business
10 Minutes to Fearless Employees
By Dr. Tom DePaoli
Published: May 2015
ISBN: 978-1511822251
Pages: 80
Genre: Business

In his creative guide to the practice of Broken Windows Management for Business, author Dr. Tom DePaoli offers practical strategies learned from his diverse career in many organizations. A description of some of the principles of broken windows management is explained and made relevant to both business and other organizations. The broken windows management analogy to some criminal justice theories is explained. In many cities of the country there’s a fear of the streets; especially if there’s disorder and the environment is in disarray. In many organizations there’s a fear of management. No small part of this can be due to employees who do not understand the actions of upper management. One of Deming’s most important points was to drive out fear. Prevention of disorder and actually fixing things that employees say are wrong; goes a very long way to establishing trust and credibility with management. Management must be vigilant and constantly try to control disorder and fix the things and issues that employees value. These actions reduce employee fear of management and actually help gain trust. Trust is enhanced by quickly fixing things that employees’ want fixed. A lot of broken windows management is learning by doing. There is ample room for creativity and having fun with broken windows management. Broken windows management is a journey not a quick fix. After years of employee neglect it will take time for broken windows management to work. It remains one of the most viable and practical ways to achieve quality of work life improvement. The author relates some for the principles of 5S and the kaizen methodology to the broken windows management approach. Told in part via a story or blog post like format, Broken Windows Management for Business uses real life examples to discuss what goes right, and often wrong, in the broken windows management trenches. Dr. Tom contrasts the broken windows management approach to current management fads, which are often ineffective, trendy, and shallow flavors-of-the-month. Broken windows management is strong on actions and results orientated approach. It requires a powerful ongoing commitment from management. The emphasis is on fixing employee issues, correcting complaints and solving problems expeditiously. Attention to detail and a passion for meeting employee’s needs are at its centerpiece. Broken Windows Management also places an emphasis on order and trying to create an impressive workplace that employees and customers would be proud of and motivated to keep clean. Dr. DePaoli sets a benchmark that the work area should be so impressive and safe that employees could take-their-child-to-work any day, at any time.
