The video that I watched this week for this course was about the four functions of management.
The instructor starts out by saying that no matter what the organization is the four functions of
management are the same. The first function of management is the planning stage, we should think of
this stage as the managers setting up a direction for the organization to follow. The instructor
emphasized another way for us to think about the planning function as setting up the objectives that will
determine our organizations actions. Key words that were used to describe planning are Vision, mission,
strategizing, goals and objectives. The second function of management is the organizing stage this
function includes the manager delegating and organizing all the tasks and resources to achieve the
objectives of the organization. Key words that were used to describe the organizing function are change
of management, delegating, culture and organizational design.
The third function of management is the leading stage this function includes how the manager
will influencing the employees and their behavior to achieve the organizational objectives. Key words
that were used to describe the leading function are leadership, motivation, communications, groups and
teams. The fourth and final function of management is the controlling stage this function includes how
the manager will establish processes and mechanisms to ensure that the organization achieves its
objectives. Key words that were used to describe the controlling function are evaluation, quality control,
system and process.
The question was asked how the four functions of management be applied to management?
The four functions of management are how management of a company or organization can use as a
template to achieve the goals they are striving for like improving sales, improving the culture of the
organization, improving patient care. In my opinion, managers can think of the four functions as a
template to success in the organization, the road to success will not be easy but will take commitment
and dedication by the organizations employees. I was surprises to see what that there were four
functions to management, the instructor in the video said that as employees, they only see the leading

and controlling function of a manager and I must agree. Me as an employee of an organization I do not
see the long hours my supervisor spends doing the planning and organizing functions of management.
Learning about the four functions has broadened my vision on how my organization should work to be
successful.
