This competency assessment assesses the following Outcomes:
MT140M2-2: Explain the four functions of management.
GEL-1.02: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard English.
The Module 2 Assessment tasks you with explaining the four functions of management: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Read the scenario below, and, using material from the textbook as well as your own research, construct an essay that addresses the organizational connections between the four functions.
Prior to working on the assessment, consider completing the following learning activity, as it will prepare you to address the assessment requirements.
Scenario (fictional):
SuperPetPlus (SPP) supplies premier pet supplies to predominantly cat and dog owners across the globe via their website and social media. On their website, they say, “Our mission is to provide superior quality pet supplies to everyone everywhere.” The company’s vision statement says, “We will improve the well-being of pets, creating environmentally friendly and affordable products.”
Their values are also listed on the website as:
“We value our customers’ needs and wants regarding their pets.”
“We provide transparent processes and materials to improve pets’ well-being and the environment.”
“Our employees, our customers, and their pets are our priority.”
The CEO is in the process of shifting to retirement and has not been a hands-on CEO for some time. They are considering appointing the finance director to the CEO position in their place. The company’s strategy is to use innovative natural materials to create practical pet supplies. These pet supplies are tested by employees to ensure they really address customers’ needs. But due to escalating prices, there have been complaints on social media. The comments include negative posts regarding the lack of affordability, which impacts sales and shows up in the customer service comments database. In addition, due to pressure from the managers to reduce costs from the finance director, the plants have been receiving material that has not always been environmentally friendly.
The headquarters is located in Madison, Wisconsin, for the executive staff. The rest of the employees are either virtual (like sales, marketing, customer service, and human resources), while their manufacturing plants are located in both Oklahoma (Western Division) and West Virginia (Eastern Division).
