All the three resources are important to get results. Therefore, organizational function helps in achievement of results which in fact is important for the functioning of a concern. According to Chester Barnard, “Organizing is a function by which the concern is able to define the role positions, the jobs related and the co- ordination between authority and responsibility. Hence, a manager always has to organize in order to get results. Source:

It stimulates our senses into the achievement of goals that have been set out for us. Its ability to shape the workforce into its own driving force is what becomes important to the success of work organizations. The meaning of motivation is tending to initiate motion; power; that which induces a person to act eg: desire, fear, and circumstance. (Oxford Dictionary, 1987) Are the CREATOR of your own destiny

List strengths first and then weaknesses. aailuis D.) Internal Factors Evaluation to PANELCO III
  24. 24. 2.) Assign a weight that ranges from 0.0 (not important) to 1.0 (all important) to each factor. The weight assigned to a given factors indicate the relative importance of the factor to being successful in the firm’s 3.) Assign a 1 to 4 to each factor to indicate whether that factor represents a major weakness (rating = 1), minor weakness ( rating = 2), minor strength (rating = 3), major strength (rating = 4). Strengths and Weakness must receive a 1 or 2 rating . Rating are company based while industry –based. aailuis
  25. 25. 4.) Multiply each factors weight by its rating to determine its weighted score for each variable. 5.) Sum the weighted scores for each variable to determine the total weighted score for the organizational (David, 2005 p147). aailuis
