planning as a management function
DO YOU EVER FEEL THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY YOU STILL DON’T SEEM TO MEET YOUR DEADLINES?
Using the decision-making processes
Give direction to employees and managers alike
The four key management functions include planning, organising, leading and controlling of resources towards the attainment of organisational objectives. The first step is planning, which means providing a framework for organising resources and direction for employees. Planning in a nutshell involves:
- Defining your ideal future
- Assessing your current state
- Identifying how you will get there using good decision-making
- Implementing and evaluating your plan
So, why do you need a strategy?
Why take time for planning?
Because it sets direction and establishes priorities, and gets everyone on the same page. But all too often, the best-laid plans fail, and you could be asking yourself why.
Does any of that ring a bell to you?
You should not set yourself up for failure. Managers need to develop relevant plans and then adapt them
where necessary to remain agile. If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail!
