Whether the participative approach can really work depends upon the type of organisation and its' functioning. An open organisation is more likely to encourage participative management than a mechanistic one. The emphasis in organizational communication from top to bottom through informal, group, team and party meetings is laid on self-starting qualities, the capacity of staff to .develop themselves in their own jobs and to grow professionally. The organizational style of functioning should encourage that people at work need to satisfy their higher level needs, for success, self respect and self-actualization, as well as their basic needs for material support and security. Participative decision making has its effect on the organization's objectives.
