Question and answer
What does it mean for a manager to have a wide span of control? Would you expect the span of control to be wide or narrow when subordinates are highly trained professionals? Support your answer.
Span of control refers to the number of subordinates a supervisor has. If a manager has a wide span of control, he or she would have many people "under" them. [ I would think the span in the situation given would be wide, as highly trained professionals should be able to take care of many matters themselves and also should be able to use technology and other ways of sharing information so one
manager could be over many. ]

what would be the consequences of a sharp increase in job specialization, what would you do to correct this situation?
Weegy: Consequences would be that it would cause for a lack of insight into the larger scheme of how a company is to function in order to make profits. [ People become to caught up in what their specialty is and often will believe that what they are doing is more important than the overall goal of the company being successful. I personally believe specialization is the wrong way to go. I feel that a more general knowledge about a larger amount of topics will lead you on a path with much more open doors. ] (More)

What factors will you consider when making your decision? If you decide to move forward will you export your finished goods or will you manufacture your goods internally also? Why?
Weegy: Here is a good example of your request. A Definition essay will share your special understanding about some idea or thing. [ [ Sometimes a definition will prove to be a small but important part of an essay; sometimes a definition will be the sole work of an entire essay. [ definition can be developed in a number of ways. A definition of a business management concept such as Total Quality Management (TQM), for instance, could begin with a history (a kind of process paper) of its inception in Japanese management systems, its migration across the Pacific, its implementation and transformation in American systems, and its predicted demise. It could also (or instead) include examples of the kind of labor conflict that TQM is supposed to eliminate or alleviate. Or it could describe TQM as a process, the steps involved in its implementation, or involve an analysis of its principles and its place in management theory. Contrasts to other management theories might be appropriate, demonstrating what TQM is not as well as what it is. We could even think of it as a Cause and Effect situation in which we describe how TQM responds to certain needs in the workplace. A definition essay is not limited to any one method of development and it may, in fact, employ more than one method at once. ] ] ] (More)
