How to organize the work of the technical department
Consider the place of the department in the overall structure of the enterprise, determine its relationship with other structural units, both horizontal and managerial - vertical. Ensure a planned arrival in the technical department of the tools, materials, raw materials and components necessary for its operation, as well as the timely acceptance of its products and reporting.
Develop a clause about the department, which describe its functions and tasks, purpose, objectives, rights, responsibilities and regulatory grounds for its activities. Prepare job descriptions for each workplace and provide it with other methodical and instructive materials that the employee will be required to follow in the course of his activities. Determine the personal responsibility of each employee of the department for the proper performance of the duties assigned to him and occasional assignments of the department head. Establish the degree and order of hierarchical subordination of posts.
Specificity of the technical department presupposes the existence of rather strict requirements to the education and experience of its manager. Develop a position about the head of the department or include these requirements in the text of the regulations on the department. Specify those criteria that a person applying for this position should satisfy.
Provide the department with the necessary material resources, equipment and personnel necessary for its successful functioning and accomplishment of the assigned tasks. If the issue with the personnel is not resolved, instruct the HR department to select personnel with the necessary qualifications. Organize training and certification of the unit's employees.
Reconsider the wage system, adjust it to increase employee motivation. Use for this and other methods - involve them in solving production issues, stimulate the introduction of new technologies, proposals for the rationalization of labor.
Take care that the technical department is provided with all necessary for its work directories, periodical special editions. Give its employees the opportunity to access the Internet - this is a prerequisite for the productive work of modern technical specialists.
