An 8th, External Management Function is Required in POSDCORB
Adil Ahmed Bushra, Manager, Member
POSDCORB are seven management processes or functions. All of these activities and duties are aimed inward rather than both in- and outward.
It seems we would need an additional 8th external function of managers in POSDCORB to accommodate things like: organization image, environmental issues, other external environment, learning organization, innovation, client, customers, competitor, results and various other impacts on the external environment of the firm.
