Represent each of the Functions of Management

Interpreting the Rubric

You have been given a rubric to explain what this paper needs. Let's take a look at it.

Application - Be sure to give examples that accurately represent each function of management.

  • What are the functions? Planning, Organizing, Leading, and Controlling.
  • What is the definition for each of these functions?


  • Use our APA template to start your paper
  • Remember that Word has spell-check. Use it.  :)


  • Each part of the paper must identify the questions and answers to the questions given in the assignment instructions. 
  • Do not confuse this with any worksheet you are given to "help you think." You do need to think. But organize according to the instructions.

Content - Saving the best for last.

  • Provide an in-depth summary of each article.
  • Use the articles to answer the questions listed in the assignment instructions thoroughly.
  • Use the articles to show an application of each management function.


Give yourself enough time to find the articles, read them, think about them, and organize them. In-depth means you have thought about the details.

All citations, including your textbook, must be in APA 7th edition.
