Getting involved means getting your hands dirty. The mission of the Business Manager’s Office is to provide and maintain quality services for Contracting, Real Estate, Faculty and Staff Housing, Faculty and Staff Moving, and the Capital Business Docket for the University in accordance with Board of Regents, State of Iowa procedures and guidelines.
Too many managers play on the weaknesses of those who depend upon them, instead of supporting and helping their staff achieve, they are anxious themselves, out of their depth and in trying to hide the fact only draw attention to their own ineptitude.
For example, the production manager will become aware of falling sales (or rising sales) of particular products and can prepare to make adjustments in production schedules, and purchasing and inventory managers will become quickly aware of any mounting inventories of unused materials.
For example, estimated sales volumes will determine the levels of production; production levels will determine raw material purchases; and so on. With good information system management, it then becomes possible to generate timely reports comparing actual sales, production, raw material deliveries, etc against estimated levels.
