Know how to identify developmental needs: Aim: Identify own learning style(s) and the learning style(s) of another member of the team. Sufficiency descriptors: Own Learning style(s) and the learning style(s) of another member of the team are indentified in detail, using a recognised model of learning styles which is itself explicitly identified. Outcome: I decided to use the Honey and Mumford learning styles to establish the learning style. This technique was developed by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford. It looks at the four stages of the learning cycle and links them in the following way: Learning Cycle Stages • Experiencing • Reflecting • Theorising • Testing Honey and Mumford • Activist • Reflector • Theorist • Pragmatist By applying this technique you are able to identify four areas for consideration.
The Four Functions of Management Abstract This paper will introduce the four functions of management and how they are both independent and dependent at the same time. Beginning with the history of management theory created by people like Henri Fayol and Mary Parker Follett and how management theory has evolved to the four major functions of effective corporate management. The Four Functions of Management One hypothesis of the classical theory of management is “the relationship between employees and management is defined by means of formal structured communication process, defined tasks, defined accountability, and formalized procedures and practices to avoid any conflict in their relationship.” (Almashaqba & Nemer Al-Qeed, 2010, p. 60) This one statement epitomizes the four functions of management. History of Management Theory In the early 1900s, Henri Fayol defined “five elements (and 15 principles) of administrative management: planning, organizing, co-coordinating, commanding, and controlling” (Andrews, 2004, p. 6). In the 1930s Luther Gulick modified these elements to include staffing, reporting, and budgeting.

This paper will analyze the impact of such factors and management responses within the General Motors, Inc. Internal and External Factors Effects on Four Functions Planning, organizing, leading, and controlling are the four vital functions to effective management (Bateman, 2009).

Although planning is very similar to decision-making there are several steps that managers can take to ensure proper implementation with employees. The primary aspects of successful planning include goal setting, control, and follow-up. Setting effective SMART goals with employees can ensure that targets are reached (Bateman, 2009).
