Professor Robert Goodwin III: Controlling The Narrative: Administration Functions

Planning is vital to the success of any venture. This does not just refer to the administration functions of your organization today. But also to five, 10 and 25 years down the road. 

By administration, we mean getting things done. The accomplishment of desired goals, and, organizing and direction of human and material resources. It involves effective planning and regulation of operations for the fulfillment of a given purpose.

It is a dynamic process and a broad term consisting of various elements. Its activities are carried out in a step by step fashion where responsibility is passed from one activity to the next. And the result of each task influences other activities.

Henry Fayol says that Administration is to manage, to plan and organize, and to carry the command. Administration and management are an integral part of living and are essential to achieve desired goals.

It is a set of principles relating to its four primary functions of planning, organizing, directing, and controlling.
Before discussing its functions, below is a quick summary of its features and aims.
Features of Administration Functions:
Continuous Process
Group Activity
Goal-Oriented
Use Of Resources

Objectives Of Administration:
Betterment And Social Justice
Maximum Results
Increases Efficiency
Benefits To Employees

Functions:
The administration and management process consists of four primary functions. And it is essential to realize that this process always needs the four functions to proceed effectively.
Here is the description of the functions necessary for any administration. These are,
Planning
Organizing
Directing
Managing
Let us look at them one by one to understand their importance.

1. Planning

Planning involves mapping out ways to achieve goals.
For example: If a company wants to increase company sales, the administration will decide which steps are necessary to carry out it.
They will improve the advertisements and will develop a plan to follow.
It is a primary function that deals with chalking out a future course of action and deciding steps. Planning is to determine in advance about what to do, when, and how.
Thus, it is a systematic process of thinking about ways to carry out pre-determined goals as a pervasive and intellectual activity.

Process Of Planning
Process of planning involves:
Analysis
Establishment of objectives
Assessment
Fixing problems
Formulate plan
Implementation
Evaluation

2. Organizing

The second function of the administration is organizing. It includes bringing together all the human and non-human resources in developing productive relationships among employees for the achievement of goals. To organize is to provide everything useful for proper functioning.
After a plan is made, there is a need to organize a team and materials. Organizing is concerned with:
Identification of the tasks and grouping them according to requirements.
You are assigning these tasks to the person with responsibility.
Coordinating the activities.

3. Directing

Directing is a third and vital function. Integrating the organizational methods to work effectively to reach a target. The life-spark that sets in motion the action because the above two functions were all about preparing. It involves the use of knowledge, character, and charisma to generate enthusiasm and inspire people to achieve goals.
This inter-personal aspect of administration deals with the following elements.

Supervision
Motivation
Leadership
Communication

Supervision: It involves supervising the work of employees and directing them.
Motivation: It involves inspiring and encouraging subordinates to work effectively.
Leadership: It involves guiding and influencing subordinates to work in the desired direction.
Communication: It involves passing the information and opinions from one person to others to make work effective. And to create a better insight into things.

4. Managing

The best practice for managing is to check whether proper progress is being made or not. It measures standards for accomplishment and corrects the deviation, if any, to reach goals. It is the measurement and correction of actions of sub-ordinates to make sure that everything is going as planned or not.
Managing has the following steps:
Establishing standards of performance.
Measurement of performance.
Comparing actual performance with standards to find deviations.
Taking corrective actions to handle deviation.
In conclusion, all the administrations perform these functions that are closely related. It is necessary to focus on each action separately.

Here are some adorable board books that are also reasonably priced, because as much as you want to treasure your child's beloved books, saving one that's been gummed to pieces just isn't appealing. Once they are past the chewing stage, almost all of these are available in hardcover or paperback, too. Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney is a beautiful story for bedtime. Repeated reading will be requested! Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann will bring out the giggles. It's virtually wordless, and your child will delight in reading the story through the illustrations. Where Is the Green Sheep by Mem Fox is a perennial favorite. The rhyming text will have your toddler asking "Where?" and delightedly pointing out the green sheep to you. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? written by Bill Martin Jr. is another simple rhyming text full of Eric Carle's gorgeous collages. A fun way to reinforce colors, too! Goodnight, Moon by Margaret Wise Brown needs little introduction. A tranquil book at the end of a toddler's busy day, it will also work its calming magic on you! Moo, Baa, La La La by Sandra Boynton was one of the favorite board books in our house. Silly rhymes and humorous illustrations will have your toddler giggling and asking for multiple re-readings. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault, with Lois Ehlert's illustrations, is a bouncing rhyme of an alphabet book that will stick in your head for days. The simple and bright illustrations will delight toddlers. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is another perennial top 10. Carle's vibrant collages seem to jump off the page, and your toddler will giggle at the caterpillar's appetite, and wonder over the beautiful butterfly he becomes.

How To Make Gyeran Bbang (계란빵), A Popular South Korean Egg Muffin
When I first got into Korean cooking, I had never actually eaten at a Korean restaurant. I didn't actually know what most of the dishes I was making were supposed to taste like, but as I live in a town with no real Korean restaurants, I was curious to find out more about the different foods the region had to offer. The nice thing about Korean food is, for the most part, the recipes are simple and easy to follow. The trickiest part about Korean cooking is being able to get all of the ingredients in place, which might require you to locate a nearby Asian grocery store or find a nice place to buy them online. (If that is your situation, I would recommend ordering from H-Mart's official website, one of the larger Korean grocery chains here in the US.) However, gyeran bbang - which translates to 'egg bread' - is a pretty simple Korean food to make without needing to dig that much for ingredients. In fact, you probably already have most if not all the ingredients in your refrigerator right now! Gyeran bbang is a popular street food that is often sold by vendors in South Korea. It was also made recently popular in the Korean television show "The Return of Superman" when actor Jang Hyunsung made them with his two sons. Gyeran bbang is perfect for any time of day, but is especially delicious when served warm for breakfast or on a cold winter day. An oval muffin pan is traditionally used to make the bread's shape, but a standard muffin pan works just as well. I've even seen gyeran bbang in adorable heart shapes! --------------------------------------------- Gyeran Bbang (Egg Bread) 3/4 cup flour 10 eggs 1/2 salted butter, melted 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup milk 3/4 teaspoon baking powder Salt, to taste 1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Whisk two eggs in a mixing bowl until they are slightly foamy. Add the sugar and continue whisking until all of it has dissolved. 2. Sift the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture. Add the melted butter and milk and mix well. Place the batter in a ziplock bag. 3. Brush the inside of the muffin pan with melted butter. Cut a 1/4" hole in one corner of the ziplock bag and squeeze 2 - 3 tablespoons worth of batter into each space. It should cover about the first 1/4". Smooth the batter with a spoon, if needed. 4. Carefully break an egg on top of each muffin. Sprinkle each egg with a generous pinch of salt, then cover each egg with the rest of the contents of the ziplock bag. (Make sure each muffin space is only 3/4 of the way full so that each muffin has room to rise.) 5. Bake the muffins for about 24 - 26 minutes or until golden brown. Turn off the oven, but leave the muffins inside for an additional five minutes to continue cooking the egg yolks. Serve warm.
Raising Sharp Readers
Here's an excellent article by Colby and Aliana Sharp, about how they are raising their three (soon to be four) children as readers. Colby is a founding member of The Nerdy Book Club, and I've followed his blog for years, but this insight into how he and his wife foster a love of reading at home provides great tips to share with parents. I've always believed surrounding children with books makes it inevitable that they will explore them, even if they can't read them yet. Corralling them on a single bookcase means books are easier to overlook. Remember, books are competing in most houses for attention. Leave them everywhere--they're not clutter, they're decor:) Be a reader yourself. One of my friends, an avid reader and book reviewer, remembers her mother stirring a pot with a book in her hand. Dinner was often overcooked, but reading was established as something very important! For some of us, local bookstores are a thing of the past, but the internet can allow you to connect your child with authors, keep up to date on new releases, and yes, seek out those elusive author visits, even if you have to drive a bit. Other tips that Colby and Aliana share include giving books as gifts (that's all I send my nieces and nephews. Scour the end of the year best book lists if you're not familiar with new children's books, or give classics that you enjoyed.) Also, frequent visits to the library to ensure you have a great selection--our library allows unlimited checkouts, and I love seeing a child carrying a large sack of books out the door. While you're at the library, be sure to explore all there is on offer--let your children pick out CDs or videos, play with puzzles or toys, etc. Our library has an outdoor space connected to the children's library. Believe me, creating positive memories about the library don't just have to involve books, but they will get kids back in the door when they're older! There are several other interesting tips in this article, so be sure to read it in its entirety, then share with parents with young ones.
