Why is Supervision Management Important?

Supervision is an essential part of the management process. It refers to the direct and immediate guidance and control of subordinates in the performance of their work. It helps to put plans into action towards the accomplishment of organizations' goals.

  • It ensures the continuity of work operation.
  • It manages staff and their performance.
  • It ensures quality of products, elimination of wastes, and steady flow of output according to plans.
  • It ensures the utilization of resources in the best interest of the organization.
  • It guarantees the proper functioning of the work­ units.
The success of an organization depends heavily upon effective supervision. Companies now-a-day look for supervisors who have these leadership skills and are experienced in dealing with people.
