Select an organization (your work, school, or other organization to which you have access) and describe the four managerial functions: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. You may reference your text in describing the styles, types, and categories you observe. Read ahead in your text if necessary to review these topics as you prepare your draft. As you progress through the course, you will gain further insight into how these four components relate as a whole. You will also receive feedback from your instructor offering suggestions for improving your draft. You will then revise and polish your paper for a final submission in Lesson 15.
The paper must be well written with proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, and references. This Research Paper will be a minimum of 6 to 7 typed pages plus a cover page and a References page, bringing the total to 8 or 9 pages. An abstract is optional unless your instructor states otherwise. The paper will be double-spaced using 12-point â€œTimes New Romanâ€ font and standard oneinch margins. This equates to approximately 1500 to 1800 words. The paper must be correctly formatted and documented using the APA style.
