Rescue Service: Management and Leadership" This requires internal competencies ranging from establishing a visionary culture built on trust and effective procurement and distribution of resources as a functional business structure. The research did not identify the volume of employees at Derbyshire Fire &. Rescue, however, the development of a training and programme development organisation makes it comparable to a small- to medium-sized organisation, requiring the same level of management and leadership presence in a business industry fitting this profile.
The PESTLE framework identifies the macroeconomic factors that impact internal business decision-making. It uses environmental scanning to identify the political, economic, social, technological, legal and eco-environmental issues that affect strategy development based on the level of the external forces’ influence on the business. An environmental scan for Derbyshire Fire &. Rescue might include assessing the level of regulatory influence over employee behaviours in their role in fire prevention and then looking at the organisational structure to identify the need for support by restructuring or assigning a champion. If such political influence is high, it requires adjusting management strategy to compensate or ensure compliance. If an environmental scan revealed a rapidly-changing growth in environmental activism in the community, the organization can redesign human resources function to include environmentalism training to enhance community perceptions of corporate social responsibility.
There is the considerable influence of political forces in this type of organization, dealing with cooperative strategies with regulatory bodies, the legal representation of private citizens and cooperative partners, and in terms of complying with governmental oversight in areas of fire and rescue protocols. Politics can also be experienced at the .internal level related to how management considers its presence within the organisation and the level of compliance necessary to be blended with more transformational leadership practice to ensure a chain of command designed to be responsive to authority.
