  Organizational Management Primer
  The Fundamental Necessities of Organizational Management




Introduction

Developing a complete skill set that allows one to be well-versed in organizational management
takes years and lots of practice. That does not mean, however, that the basic foundation of this
critical set of skills cannot be learned by study, and that is the purpose of this Primer – to provide
you with an introduction to the fundamentals of organizational management.

                                            Organizational management means being able to

                                            organization begins to realize the benefit of proper
planning.

The four key elements in organizational management are: (1) planning; (2) organizing; (3)
leading; and (4) coordinating. We will look at each of these elements separately.




Step 1: Planning

There are several types of planning, however those that apply most closely to business are
strategic planning, project planning, program planning, and business planning, each of which can

so. Consideration must be given to which teams, units or departments will need which pieces of
information in order to continue day-to-day operations, but also who will assist in facilitating
