    The basic functions of any firm can be separated into planning, control, and operations, the time span of decision being the separating variable. In the planning sector, the three basic factors of importance are the methodologies and concepts used to relate and integrate corporate strategy, structure, and policies. As the physical size of a firm changes, possibly accompanied by shifts in customer ... View full abstract»

    This paper reports an experimental investigation of the “efficiency” of an engineering department by means of an internal audit. The audit employed a questionnaire circulated to all department members. While no quantitative measures of departmental efficiency were obtained by this technique, the qualitative results proved highly useful to the department manager. The methodology used ...
