Four Functions of Management
A successful manager is one that leads his company to a stated objective by using all means available for accomplishing it by known procedures, guidelines and resources accessible. In order to reach this concept four functions are recognized. The four functions of management stated are planning, organizing, leading and controlling. Each of these functions helps the manager in a specific manner to aid in his managerial role. Many recommend following these four steps in order to achieve the success anticipated for future plans of the company. All four of these functions need to be given an equal amount of time as they are important elements in any organization field.

Strategic planning such as who the employee should be, tactical planning as in how should the crew select the anticipated employee in the standards set, contingency as in having an alterative means of finding employees if the current technique has failed.
Organizing defines the previous well planned goals into a integrated system assigning them to employees and establish commands to coordinate the work. A structural framework is needed to assemble all these factors together. This is done by organizing the plan made and prioritizing the steps to recognize what should be done first and subsequent steps throughout the process into a constructed structure. Then each employee is consigned a job to be completed, such as identifying the staff, reviewing there biodata and resumes, keeping accurate record and filing of applications in order for the goals to be obtained.
Leading is motivating a crew to accomplish a target, by setting short and long term goals and to be able to deliver these goals to them. The manager should be an idol model, influencing, and conflict solver. This is done by being the leader of the process throughout it all, supervising all the jobs appointed to all employees, making sure they are carried through accurately to pursue the objective wanted and using the authority given in a responsible effective manner. Therefore the manager should ensure that previous tasks have been completed, candidates to be staffed have been categorized, skills and other relevant data classified, records maintained in a proper way for future reference. A form of directing the workers can be through empowerment i.e. giving power to those workers to make decisions, and being supported by managers at the same time.
Controlling is coordinating procedures and resources to achieve the preset objectives in a very effective and high standard performance. This is done by thorough monitoring and following of the process updates and structures conducted. The performance should be measured throughout the whole deal and measured against the guidelines and goals set previously, making sure the quality is well maintained, if not to be abruptly located and corrected when needed. Control of the staffing agency must always be up to date, making sure that the objectives are fulfilled, and periodically evaluated.
