Four Functions of Management
The four functions of management, planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, are very essential in building strong organizations and even stronger more effective teams. Planning, organizing, leading, and controlling are the functions of management. These function activities must be preformed by all managers regardless of their industry level, title, or the task they have at hand. These four management skill are used when ever a project or a task is at hand. Even in the field we are working in, many of us may have been using the four management functions and not noticed what they were, or we may have been a part of a team that was lead by the functions of management and not noticed what was going on.
The Four Functions of Management:
Planning, Organizing, Leading, and Controlling
The functions of management are defining the roles and responsibility of each and ever team member. I will define the functions and explain how each function is used at my work place. My role in the functions of management in the work place is a team member where I have a Business Department Chair and my team member and I are the business instructors where we take care of the student who are enrolled in Business Office Applications, Web Design, Business Diploma Programs, and Technical Support and Networking.
Planning is defined as setting goals and deciding the course of actions we need to take to be successful, putting together the rules and procedures on reaching our goal, putting together the plans on how we must proceed with our process, and deciding where you want the work place to be in the future. The planning stage is where all the other pats of management begin from and it is important at all levels of management.
The way planning is used at the college where I work, is after each semester or during the break in-between each semester we have a departmental meeting where we sit and discuss what happened during the past quarter and then we plan and discuss what we want to happen for the following semester. We set goals on how many students we want in each of the business programs and what actions we need to take in order to make our plan be a success.
