In this first-time journal assignment, go to Section 1.1 of your text, and watch The Five Functions of Managers video on the five management functions of planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling resources to achieve organizational goals. How are the five management functions currently applied where you work (or did work)? How do you think any could have been applied differently?
It’s ok to write your ideas and experiences here as though you are composing a journal entry. While good writing habits (spelling, punctuation, capitalization) are always useful in conveying clear thoughts, this is an opportunity to share your experiences in a more informal format. Complete your journal in one page only, being mindful of spelling and grammar.
