What is the organizing function? How does it relate to the other management functions?
Organizing is the process of arranging people and other resources to work together to accomplish a goal. Organizing follows the planning function and precedes the leading and controlling functions. Planning gives direction to the organization by providing a clear mission, core values, objectives, and strategy. In short, planning results in strategy formulation. Organizing begins the process of strategy implementation by dividing up the work, arranging resources, and coordinating activities. Leading and controlling continue with the process of strategy implementation
