Students need all the information they can get when it comes down to studying, regardless of whether they are aware of it. They need to take advantage of all information, including white papers, periodicals and magazines, as well as research articles and blogs.
This brief information should be of use to aspiring students in business management, secretarial sciences and/or programming. These tools will help the student prepare for success in management. Management students must first understand the P.O.S.D.C.The’s of management
PLANNING is the process of setting goals and deciding what must be done in order to achieve the organization’s mission.
ORGANIZING is the process of assigning tasks, the coordination and structuring of resources, as well as the work activities of the organization.
STAFFING is the act of creating a team and attracting and retaining qualified employees to the company.
DIRECTING: The process of providing leadership, motivating others, and building a great working environment.
CONTROL: The process of establishing enterprise standards, analysing results, measuring actual performance, and monitoring to ensure that standards have been met. Controlling can also include corrective and planning actions.
The process of managing and what it takes to be a manager should be familiarized with by students. Managers who are knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of their teams are the best. With the support of managers, the needs of the team can be met.
Management involves the management of people and resources. These four functions are shared by all managers regardless of their title, position, type or organizational setting. These functions are not carried out in a straight line. John R. Schermerhorn Jr. continues to say …” The reality is that these functions are constantly engaged as a manager moves between tasks and opportunities in his or her job.
Although I agree with Mr. Schermerhorn and other experts in this field, the ultimate goal for a manager/manager is to assist the organization in achieving its highest performance through the efficient use of resources, both human and material.
Henry Mintzberg said, “Even though the management process might seem simple, things are more complex than they seem at first glance.” He also added instant messages and e-mail to his list for executive/managerial operations.
Remember my message, “IT and Bi”, where I explained the non-hyperbole marriage of Business Intelligence with Information Technology. “BI, IT practically, methodically, and basically, go arm-in–arm.” Look around. Technology and management are everywhere. To reach the top in management, you must first master the P.O.S.D.C. of management.
