Span of management

  1. 1. SPAN OF MANAGEMENT
  2. 2. • When applied to management, ‘span ’ refers to the number of subordinates a manager or supervisor can supervise, manage or control effectively and efficiently. • If the number of subordinates placed under one manager is too large, it will become difficult to effectively control them and the desired results cannot be achieved.
  3. 3. • On other hand, if the number is too small, the time, energy and abilities of the supervisor are not utilized fully and the task may not be accomplished. • According to Spriegal ‘Span of control’ means the number of people reporting directly to an authority. The principle of span of control implies that no single executive should have more people looking to him for guidance and leadership than he can reasonably be expected to serve.
  4. 4. • The span of control is also known as span of supervision, span of management, span of responsibility, span of authority and span of direction.
