"Course: Principles of Management" is the introductory course taken by most undergraduate business majors. Almost every text/course is organized around the four functions of management: planning, leading, organizing, and controlling (PLOC). What makes the texts different are their approach to the subject (principles vs. OB focused) and their strengths of coverage (high/strategic vs. low level/applied/skills). The aim of this text is to show how the four functions interact.
