During the process of planning, the management sets various standards of performance covering all the aspects of a business operation. At the same time the methods of control mechanism are also specified. Hence, when a manager finds any deviation from the set standard, they need to take immediate corrective action. Prompt action will not only set the deviation right but also ensure that no such thing happens in the future too.
This book is an attempt to provide an insight into the various systems of management control, and is likely to benefit both practising as well as aspiring managers.
