Span of Management

By: Yogin Vora on February 7, 2012 3 Comments

The span of management indicates the no. of people that report to a particular manager. Hence it states that there is a limit to the no.of subordinates a manager can effectively supervise, but the exact number will depend on certain factors.

Factors That Influence Effective Span of Management are as follows:

1. Competence of supervisors and subordinates

(If there is  more competence, there is a wider potential span)

2. Physical dispersion of subordinates

( If there is more dispersion, the potential span is narrow)

3. The Degree of non-supervisory work in manager job

( If there is greater non-supervisory work, the potential span is narrow)

4. The Extent of required interactions

(If the no. of required interactions are more, the potential span is wider)

5. The Degree of standardized procedures

(If the procedures are more standardized, the potential span is wider)

6. Similarity of task being supervised

(The more similar is the task, the potential span is wider)

7. Frequency of new problems

(If the frequency of new problems is high, the potential span is narrow)

8. Preferences of supervisors and subordinates
