After watching the One Smooth Stone video and reviewing the company’s website, address the following questions:

In your response, for each of the three management theories selected, be sure to address each of the following management approaches: classical, behavioral, and modern management. (Modern management approaches include the quantitative, systems, contingency, quality-management, or learning organization viewpoints).

Conclude the essay by reflecting on your organization and addressing the following:
