What is the last step in controlling process?
What will be the corrective action for defective material?
Change in Quantity and the price will definitely not correct the defective material. The best corrective measure for defective material will be to change the quality of the product used to a better quality.
What will be the corrective action for defective machinery?
Technological upgradation is the best corrective action in case of _________
Obsolete Machinery means that it may be defective or may have become worn out or obsolete or no longer used or useful in the operations. So when a machinery is obsolete it causes a lot of cost in repairing and producing less. So upgrading to a better machinery is the best corrective action in case of obsolete machinery.
Controlling is blind without _________________
Planning without controlling is __________________
There is one popular saying that Planning is looking _________ while controlling is looking ________
Planning is Looking Ahead and Control is Looking Back
Planning and controlling are inseparable. Planning is the primary function of every organisation it is the thinking process, which mean looking ahead or making plans that how desired goal is achieved in future thus it is called a formed looking function on the other hand controlling is a systematic function which measures the actual performance with the planned performance. It compared and analysed the whole process of an organisation and take correcting actions. Thus, it is a backward looking function but the statement "Planning is looking ahead and controlling is looking back" is partially correct because it should be understood that planning is glided by past experiences and the corrective action initiated by control function which aims to improve future performance. Thus, planning and controlling are both backward looking as well as a forward looking function.
What is not correct about controlling?
Controlling is necessary for ____________
The main focus of controlling is on ________________
Control is measuring actual performance, comparing it with standard performance, finding deviations and adopting measures to check the deviations. In a small organisation, managers can check every activity of members by adopting appropriate control devices but as organisations increase in size and complexity, managers cannot control all activities of the organisation single handedly.
They are occupied with many important managerial activities to inspect and control every organisational activity. Besides, this is costly and time-consuming. Managers should, therefore, focus on the critical points or areas of control which best reflect organisational goals.
Controlling is _______________
Control is an expensive process it involves lot of time and effort as sufficient attention has to be paid to observe the performance of the employees. To install an expensive control system organisations have to spend large amount. Management must compare the benefits of controlling system with the cost involved in installing them.
Setting a standard time, say, 6 hours to perform a task is an example of ________
One of the greatest obstacles to the identification of excellence inqualitative studies is the lack of generally accepted criteria.
Why actual performance is compared with standards?
Which of the following is a limitation of controlling?
When actual performance is better than the standard performance it is called _____
If actual performance is less than the standard performance it is called______
If there is lack of motivation among employees, suggest one better corrective action
Controlling cannot prevent _______________
The task of controlling involves taking corrective action where any deviations are found. Management cannot prevent it and must determine what activities are critical to success and who should have the authority to take corrective action.
Which of the following is not correct?
The correct option is C.
Control is a function of management which helps to check errors in order to take corrective actions.Controlling cannot prevent deviations, it can minimise them by taking actions that reduce their recurrence. Controlling is taking steps to ensure that actual performance conforms to planned performance; by preventing deviations and taking corrective measures to reduce their recurrence.An ideal control system provides timely feedback that can be used to monitor and correct deviations.
