Conclusion

Consider some problems that may arise and indicate how managers could deal with these problems. This provides evidence for P3, M1 Management Activity Managers can get things done through the work of other people. Managers will plan, set objectives, organise, control and motivate the people working for them using different techniques and activities. The objectives are set out in an overall way, and then the manager will set them out in ways that are necessary and understandable to their staff to achieve. Managers have to make sure that everybody knows what they have to do to achieve the objectives set to them. If workers are operating under a good management system they are more likely to be well motivated to produce the work needed and to the standard which is required by the company they work for. Managers have to be able to motivate their staff to produce work to their full potential. Managers must give regular evaluations of performance of their staff. Some problems which could arise in a business are things such as: Low staff levels, low money levels/income of money or on a larger scale, failure of the business. Ways managers could deal with problems such as these include: recruitment of new staff, cutting budgets or staff levels and in the event of failure the business will refer to their contingency plan.
