Most managers in organizations develop strategic plans without realizing the importance of internal and external assessments and their implications on the four functions of management. Assume you are hired as a new manager and you want to improve your company by helping upper management develop a better understanding of these issues.
Using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet, research internal and external assessments.
Then respond to the following:
- Explain the four functions of management and the purpose of internal and external assessments.
- How would you convince upper management about the importance of internal and external assessments?
- How would you demonstrate the critical relationships that exist between assessments and the four functions of management implemented in most organizations?
