    The four functions of management in what is called the management
    process are—planning, organizing, leading, and controlling.

    Planning is the process of setting performance objectives and determining what actions should be taken to accomplish them. Through planning, a manager identifies desired results and ways to achieve them.

    Organizing is the process of assigning tasks, allocating resources, and coordinating work activities.

    Leading is the process of arousing enthusiasm and inspiring efforts to achieve goals.

    Controlling is the process of measuring performance and taking action to ensure desired results.
