Whether you are a manager, a potential future manager, or an employee within an organization, you will benefit from becoming competent in the four functions of management.
Robbins and Judge (2013) discussed the four functions of management in the POLC model: Planning, Organizing, Leading, and Controlling. You also practiced with these four functions in your Learning Activity. Think about a time in your work, or in your personal or school experience where you have used all four functions of management. You may choose different experiences if no one experience covered all functions.
- Describe that experience to your classmates using research support from the text or another viable source (you may not use Wikipedia).
- Which function do you believe managers use most often?
- What could have made the leadership function a better experience?
