What are the different types of control systems? What are some advantages and disadvantages of the various control mechanisms? How does your organization use the steps of the control process?
There are many advantages and disadvantages of control systems in business management. These control systems should be thoroughly examined and applied in order to be a successful manager and have a business run smoothly. [ The types of control systems are bureaucratic control, market control, and clan control. Bureaucratic control uses "formal rules, standards, hierarchy, and legitimate
authority", and this type of control system works well with specific tasks that are done by independent workers (Bateman & Snell, 2009, p.34). Many businesses utilize this form of a control system in management. Market control uses "prices, competition, profit centers, and exchange relationships" to establish control, and it works well where "tangible output can be identified and market can be established between parties" (Bateman & Snell, 2009). This type of control system is unpopular because the constant fluctuation of the market causes complications with the security of this control system. Clan control involves shared culture, beliefs, standards, and trust. This control system works best where no one is strictly the decision maker and employees are encouraged to provide input, make choices, and act independently. This is a new control system that is starting to become popular with the increased need for innovation. Some advantages of bureaucratic control systems are lack of confusion about decision making and lack of confusion in expectation and standards required from employees. This type of control system has clear management rules and responsibilities are cut and dry. Disadvantages of this system are lack of employee morale and lack of room for change and innovation. Independent workers and strict guidelines can make employees feel undervalued, and this is a disadvantage for business and management. An advantage of market control systems is a flexible system, but this is also a disadvantage because value is always changing and employees may suffer from companies being repeatedly bought and sold. ]

Weegy: Bureaucratic, clan, and market are the three different types of control systems in management. Bureaucratic controls are the use of rules, regulations, and authority to guide performance. [ Market control control is based on the use of pricing mechanisms and economic information to regulate activities within the organization. Clan control is based on the norms, values, and goals, trust among group members.The advantage of controls Forces people to think about what they are doing Creates a certain amount of structure Allows a way to track progress and risks An easy way to disseminate the status The disadvantage of controls Uses time that could be used on doing the work instead of reporting about it Can be misleading if not implemented properly Can be misleading of condensed wrongly Some people concentrate on "how it'll look in the report" instead of trying to achieve the project goal Read more: ] (More)
