Control The control process is intended to support the achievement of objectives. Managers design specific control systems for different organizational activities. There are four steps of control: Setting targets – what and when to measure o Targets provide direction and a standard of performance to try to achieve; o Standard of performance is the defined level of performance to be achieved against which operations currently (atualmente) performance is compared. Measuring – the tools of control Comparing - real values with the setting objectives o This step shows the variation between actual and planned performance o There is bound to be some variation from the plan, so, before acting, a manager needs to know the acceptable range of variation (the acceptable limits of variation between actual and planned performance). Correcting - correct the deviations or change the objectives o The final step is to act on significant variations from the plan, either to correct future performance or to revise the standard.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
