INTRODUCTION

1.1  BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
An organization is a combination of people or individuals efforts working together on pursuit of certain purpose called organizational goals. It is any group of two or more people working to achieve goal or goals. The goals may be such a thing as profit, spreading of knowledge, national defence, social satisfaction e.tc when people thus combine, certain characters emerge which make the combination organization (Griffin 1984: 25).


All administrators, whether they operates in private business, a government agency, a church, a charitable organization or a university, must in varying degrees take into accounts the elements and forces of their environment. While they may be able to do little or nothing to change these forces, they have no alternative but to respond to them. They must identify, evaluate and react to the forces that may affect its operations. (weihrich and koonts 2003:58).
Organization are made up of people and others primarily, the administrator is there to combine other resources. These resources are combine with a view to attaining organizational goals.

Quantitative decision methods are suitable for setting re-order levels, ordering quantities and other key elements. The system can be judged by readily acceptable quantitative measures, for example, the rate of stocks held in relation to sales, number of others placed and so on.
On the other hand ‘soft’ system are characterized by more vagueness and irrationality. Objectives are hard to define and are subject to change and arguments, decision making is more uncertain. Measures of performance must often be formed in qualitative terms and above all, the system must include recognition of human behaviour with all its attendant conflicts, aspirations and irrationalities. To a greater or lesser degree it will be apparent that any system in an organization contains soft system elements because of the presence of people. Because.....
