During the OPP module we had, where we looked at people's behaviours and motivation in organisations. it got me thinking and trying to make assessment on people as resources that are being used in organisations.
By this, i mean the importance of people as assets in the organisation. if people are of such significance in the day to day running of organisations, hence i tend to believe that they are one of the most valuable assets which an organisation should first and foremost manage.
My belief is that if organisations understand, engage and manage these "humans" first using a summary of Gallup's Q12 principle -focus on the employees, know your employees and care about your employees it might be a stepping stone or a motivation for the employees to a better management of the companies assets.
Basically managing people first should bring about the needed ability and will to share knowledge, values and ideas to enable them manage the assets of the company.
