Semester 1 Strategy and Planning The first course sets the theme for the programme: Petroleum economics will be refreshed with a focus on incremental project economics, and followed by risk analysis specific to ranking mature field options:
Andrea Danti The study of management as a discipline is relatively new, especially when compared with other scientific disciplines.
Yet, to truly understand current management thought, it is necessary to examine the historical links. It is best to consider not only management pioneers' management theories, but also the contextual and environmental factors that helped to clarify the developmental process behind the theories.
Therefore, management pioneers may be easily placed along a historical timeline. Using the work of Daniel Wren as a guide, the following categories are employed: Adam Smith brought about the revolution in economic thought and James Watt's steam engine provided cheaper power that revolutionized English commerce and industry.
In doing so, they also laid the foundation for modern notions of business management theory and practice. Adam Smith — was a Scottish political economist.
His Wealth of Nations, published inestablished the "classical school" and with its publication, he became the father of "liberal economics. The specialization of labor was the mainstay of Smith's market system.
According to Smith, division of labor provided managers with the greatest opportunity for increased productivity.
James Watt —aided by Matthew Boulton —and building on the work of his predecessors, developed his first workable steam engine in Together the partners founded the engineering firm of Boulton, Watt, and Sons. Recognized as Watt's greatest breakthrough, in he developed a steam engine with rotary, rather than the traditional up-and-down, movement.
This made the engine more adaptable to factory uses as the engine replacing water wheel power for grinding grain, driving textile machines, and operating bellows for iron works. Steam power lowered production costs, lowered prices, and expanded markets.
In the sons of Boulton and Watts took over the management of the company and instituted one of the first complete applications of scientific management.
In this plant there is evidence of market research, including machine layout study involving workflow, production standards, cost accounting, employee training, employee incentives, and employee welfare programs. However, the factory system brought new problems for owners, managers, and society.
Four management pioneers proposed solutions for coping with the pressures of the new large-scale industrial organizations. Robert Owens — was a successful Scottish entrepreneur and a utopian socialist who sowed the first seeds of concern for the workers.
He was repulsed by the working conditions and poor treatment of the workers in the factories across Scotland. Owen became a reformer. He reduced the use of child labor and used moral persuasion rather than corporal punishment in his factories. He chided his fellow factory owners for treating their equipment better than they treated their workers.
Owen deplored the evils of the division of labor and in his ideal system believed each man would do a number of different jobs switching easily from one job to another. Additionally, Owen hated the modern factory system, so he decided to revolutionize it. The bill became law six years later, but was limited to cotton mills, reduced the age limit to nine, and included no provision for inspections; therefore, the law had little impact.
Feeling frustrated in his attempts to reform Britain, Owen traveled to America in He continued on to New Harmony, Indiana, where he had purchased a large plot of land. New Harmony was the first and most famous of sixteen U.
None, however, lasted more than a few years as full-fledged socialist communities. Charles Babbage — is known as the patron saint of operations research and management science.
Babbage's scientific inventions included a mechanical calculator his "difference engine"a versatile computer his "analytical engine"and a punch-card machine. His projects never became a commercial reality; however, Babbage is considered the originator of the concepts behind the present day computer.
Babbage's most successful book, On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers, described the tools and machinery used in English factories. It discussed the economic principles of manufacturing, and analyzed the operations; the skills used and suggested improved practices.
Babbage believed in the benefits of division of labor and was an advocate of profit sharing. He developed a method of observing manufacturing that is the same approach utilized today by operations analysts and consultants analyzing manufacturing operations.
Andrew Ure — and Charles Dupin — were early industrial educators. Ure provided academic training at Anderson's College in Glasgow for managers in the early factory system. He published a text in that dealt mainly with the technical problems of manufacturing in the textile industry, but also dealt with problems of managing.
Obviously pro-management, Ure advocated an "automatic plan" to provide harmony and to keep any individual worker from stopping production.INTEGRATED THESIS & RESEARCH MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Graduate School, Silpakorn University. iThesis. INTEGRATED THESIS & RESEARCH MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

Strategy (from Greek στρατηγία stratēgia, "art of troop leader; office of general, command, generalship") is a high-level plan to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty.
In the sense of the "art of the general", which included several subsets of skills including "tactics", siegecraft, logistics etc., the term came into use in the 6th century AD in East Roman.
