- BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY:
It should be known first that a decision is a choice whereby a person forms a conclusion about a situation Costello, I Wand Zalkind, S.S. (1963 p. 334), confined the term decision making, to a choice process, choosing one from among several possibilities. However, election theory in Costello, T.W. et al (1963, p. 387) largely considers decision as asking the process of making a single choice among course of action at a particular point in time. This depicts a course of behaviour about what must be done or vice versa.
Decision, however, is the point at which plans, policies and objectives are translated into concrete actions. Planning engenders decision guided by company policy and objectives, policies, procedures and programmes. The aim of decision making is to channel human behaviour towards a future goal.
Decision making is one of the most germane activities of management. It has been the preoccupation of all the management of multifarious organization ranging from small-scale organization to multinational corporations.
Managers many at times consider decision making to be the heart of their job in that they must always choose what is to be done, who will do it, when, where and most of the time how it will be done.
Traditionally, managers influence the ordinary employees and specifically, their immediate subordinate in the organization. This has resulted in managers making natural decision even in area affecting their subordinates. In Germany, around 1951, a law enacted which provides for code termination and requires labour membership in the supervisory board and executive committee of certain large corporations. However, the participation of labour in decision making process results to relatively and peacefully labour management relations.
Additionally, the Japanese management WSES decision making by concensus in which lower – level employee initiate the reaches the desk of the top executive. If the proposal is approved, it is returned to the initiator for implementation.
It is in this context, that the researcher wishes to assess the impact of employees participation in decision making on organisational productivity in Nigerian Public Sector organization, using Anammco Company as a case study.
1.2 STATEMENTOF THE PROBLEM:
There has been a lot of controversy as to whether an employee should participate in managerial decision making or not. Some writers argued that employees where it affects them or their jobs, it is expected that such participation will serve as training and testing ground for future members of upper management.
In Nigeria, experts that refuted the above assertion see the arrangement as a symptom of malorganisation. They maintained that, qualified, reasonably, honest and company oriented individuals are not available at these lower organizational level. But the big question is, are qualified individuals really available? All these underlay the need for investigation study.
