INTRODUCTION Henry Fayol define coordination according to the principle of balance and contingent action. For Fayol “ to co-ordinate is to harmonize all the activities of a concern so as to facilitate its working and its success” while Henry Ford said “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success”. What is Coordination? 1. The process of synchronizing activities of various persons in the organization in order to achieve goals. 2. It involves the techniques of consultative management, democratic leadership, effective group thinking, and appropriate participation 3. The act or state of coordinating or of being coordinated. 4. Proper order or relationship. 5. Harmonious combination or interaction, as of functions or parts. Why Coordination? It is because “COORDINATION” Must Exist or There’s No Organization – only an Experience” Remember Coordination applies to the group effort; not individual effort.

    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.

    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.
