The Unit 5 Assignment tasks you with the synthesis of the four functions of management: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Using material from your first four assignment submissions, you will construct a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the connection between the four functions. Using the company, you selected back in Unit 1 and referring to the readings and case studies in Units 2, 3, and 4, you will construct a slide deck that traces the organization’s progress through the POLC functions. Outcomes evaluated through this assignment include MT140-02 and GEL-1.02.
