a Sales manager, I have used POLC all the time. Running a business this
is a must and is done on a daily basis. For planning, this entailed
making sure the I have the proper coverage at my store on a daily basis
to be able to support all the customers as well planning an attack plan
on which metrics we will need to focus on that we need to grow our
business. Organizing pretty much is my strongest functions out of the
POLC. I need to be organized to be able to function on a daily basis,
such as plan, lead and control. If I had to pick what I need to work on
more out of the four it would be controlling. According to Judge,
correcting deviations is an important part of controlling (Robbins and
Judge, 2019). I am hands on person and sometimes I forget to step back
and assess the situation and re-evaluate if need be. I have made
improvements and have scheduled weekly time to assess the business as a
whole as well as with individual employees.

can think of many times as the production manager at my previous
company where planning, organizing, leading and controlling were all
used. That company manufactured CCAs (circuit card assemblies) and the
design and process was very detail-oriented. For planning, I had to
decide which work orders to start, and based that daily on the
amount/type of work already on the floor. If the hand solder department
was already behind I would choose work orders with little to no hand
soldering to alleviate the bottleneck. Organizing the plan involved
meeting with team leads and supervisors of each of the five departments
and making sure they understood the flow of work and knew what was
coming and going in their areas. Leading was being on the floor, not at
my desk and encouraging as well as following up to make sure we were on
track. I also provided support, such as getting the employees anything
they needed to be successful. Controlling was metric-driven, and being
able to look at/produce the metrics needed to identify problem areas
that needed to be addressed. All of this was a daily activity for me.

I had to pick my weakest area from the four it would be controlling.
According to Judge, correcting deviations is an important part of
controlling (Robbins and Judge, 2019). My biggest issue here is that I
like to be very involved and sometimes have a hard time taking a step
back to asses and re-evaluate. I have gotten much better at it, but know
there is always room to improve.

Hello Class and Professor,

have used the POLC I a few jobs in my life, but when I worked as a
manager in a group home for the mentally handicapped is where it was the
most pronounced. As a manager there, I was responsible for planning
everything from meals to outings and anything that you would think of
when you think about a family environment. I was responsible for all of
that and then had to manage the employees to make sure that they were
effectively doing their jobs. That included making sure they were happy
with the work environment and that everyone got along well. To make sure
that the environment was cohesive amongst everyone (employees and
residents) I had to use all four functions regularly. I feel like I have
the hardest time with the controlling function. That is because I might
not always enforce things that I need to enforce to try and keep the
cohesiveness of the workplace. I have gotten better at this over time,
but still feel like I need improvement. I feel like I am very strong at
the planning function. This has also come with time and experience.
Through my past experiences, I am really good at seeing what needs to be
done in my organization and managing my team to make sure those goals
are set and met with success. I look forward to reading your responses.
