How effective are your control systems?


As a manager, you will have to control work processes and monitor performance. There are three types of controls that occur in organizations:

  • Feedforward control: prevents future problems.
  • Concurrent control: collects performance in real time.
  • Feedback control: collects performance information after a task or project is completed.

For this discussion:

  • Describe one control system used by your current organization or a previous employer.

Be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts.
