Abstract:

The study of management is typically broken out into four primary areas: planning, organizing, directing, and controlling. This chapter provides an overview of those management functions, presented in basic, practical language. It provides laboratory managers and supervisors an overview of basic management principles and practices in a laboratory or clinical setting. The chapter gives the reader practical advice on the strategic planning process, and points the reader toward significant writings on the topic of management through citations and a bibliography. A laboratory manager must develop a system to organize the workflow, policies, and staffing of the laboratory. He or she must provide direction to the laboratory by communicating, delegating, motivating, and coaching. The manager must control the activities of the laboratory, constantly reviewing the current situation to ensure that there are no unattended details. There is no substitute for engaged leadership.
