Four Functions of Management: Planning, Organizing, Leading & Controlling

The four functions of management are planning, organizing, leading and controlling. These are the foundations of any professional managerial position and are codified by Henri Fayol. Without these four pillars of management supporting other responsibilities, nothing is going to get done on time and within budget. To be a successful manager, you need to understand these fundamentals and use hybrid work management tools to connect with coworkers and teams wherever they might be working. ProjectManager is a cloud-based work management software that helps hybrid teams work better by giving them a collaborative platform with multiple project views.

It has four functions: planning, operational planning, organizing tasks, and organizing the larger picture. Planning involves understanding goals and objectives, while operational planning involves identifying and assigning resources. Organizing involves prioritizing tasks and giving each a deadline and duration. Communication is a key element of planning, as managers must clearly communicate the plan to their team and keep them updated on the progress of the work.
