Controlling Output. Supervising. Technical Aspects of Supervision. The Choice Series #37. A Self Learning Opportunity.
This student guide is intended to assist persons employed as supervisors in improving their ability to control output. Discussed in the first three sections are the following topics: the control process (stages in control, control and planning, the supervisor and control, and ways of choosing areas to control); ways of controlling output (general and specific techniques for controlling work flow, materials, quality, plant and equipment, and work methods); and the workteam and control (motivation and training and development). Each of these sections contains an introduction, sections of instructional text that are interspersed with reinforcing learning activities, and a section summary. The fourth part of the guide includes a series of performance checks (an end check, a tutor check, and a work-based project). A unit review, which also includes a description of related extension courses and resources, concludes the guide. (MN)
