Part 4 – Controlling and Leading
The next function of management is controlling. Now that you have designed the way you will run the event and how each facet will be handled, you need to decide what you want to control/monitor, and how you will do so. For this week’s first proposal section, describe how you will control each of these operational functions:
· inventory (donations)
The final function of management you will carry out, and one of the most important for the overall success of the event, is leading. In this week’s proposal section, describe how you will lead/manage your team. You also need to evaluate and summarize your test results from the week one ungraded/survey-type quiz, and explain why you agree or disagree on if the findings truly represent you.
· You are required two outside references other than the textbook for each of the three parts for a total of at least six references for your final proposal submission
