How the management style of J Sainsbury affects its performance and operation and helps it to meet its objectives. J Sainsbury has a tall organisational structure and has an autocratic and democratic management style. The management style of J Sainsbury helps it to meet its objective, which is: "Is to be the customers first choice in food". By the way that the managers make the entire key decisions about the supermarket with the help of staff members.

Overall I think that the management style of J Sainsbury is of a good standard because everyone in the business has a say about the decisions that are made, and also everyone (staff and customers etc) is respected regardless of their background. The management style also has good strategies in meeting targets and providing a good customer service. ...read more.
