also plays an important role in reducing risk by allowing management to look ahead and prepare for any unexpected issues or problems (Anastasia, 2017). Organization goes hand-in-hand with planning. Organizing doesn’t just refer to having things in order; it also refers to understanding the overall structure of the organization and team. In her article “Five Functions of Management & Leading”, Kimberlee Leonard says “the organizing function brings resources together to achieve the goals established in the planning function.” These resources may include people, money, and supplies, but a good manager should also identify what activities are necessary, delegate them to personnel, and assign tasks (Leonard,

UNIT 1 ESSAY 3 2019). Leaders should be able to prioritize which aspects of a project or plan should come first, second, third, etcetera. Organizing is also closely tied to the hierarchy of management and different levels of managers will have different tasks (Anastasia, 2017). Each level of management organizes the teams below them. When talking about staffing, most people think it refers to long- or short-term assignments, but in the context of management staffing means having the right people in the right positions. Staffing is also closely related to planning and organizing, as both are required to ensure that staffing is appropriate for a project but also for day-to-day running of the business. Staffing entails analyzing the business and determining the correct number of people and positions to achieve your goals.

    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.
