Part 2 (two): Respond to Classmate post below
Companies must use both strategic and financial controls. They are used in various combinations which can vary based on the company’s strategy. Strategic controls are subjective and used to verify that the appropriate strategies are in place. They require a lot of communications between managers to ensure everyone is on the same page. The financial controls are used to measure the firms status against previously set standards of themselves and its competition.
As a leader, I think I would feel ethically responsible for developing the company’s human capital. As a leader, you want your immediate team and other teams that you may be indirectly responsible for to grow and to be successful. I believe that my position is consistent with the “PR” answer that each leader will provide. Putting those words into action is entirely a different story.
