Introduction

Management Planning David J Knox MGT/330 April 10, 2010 Matthew Handlon Management Planning Management planning is essential for a company like Boeing due to its massive and complicated structure. Boeing operates on global levels and provides products of all kinds to customers around the world. They manufacture high end aircraft for commercial and military organizations. These products manufactured primarily carry passengers, cargo, and execute military operations of the highest importance.

These low level managers ensure tasks are being executed properly by non manager employees. These managers also take charge of quality control for the all the physical operation the business has to offer.
