3 Important Elements of Coordination in Management are given below:
According to Louis Allen co-ordination comprises three principal elements or steps-(1) balancing (2) timing and (3) integrating.
1.Balancing implies that something is provided more in order to compensate for some other thing which is less. Thus in a large organisation it involves the provision to staff support to the line personnel and vice versa.
2.Timing suggests that different parts of an operation are carried on according to such schedules that the beginning of each part synchronizes with the end of the preceding part and its end, in turn with the beginning of the following part.
3.Integrating is the effective co-ordination of different elements’ and diverse interests so that all the units of the organisation and whatever they do ultimately conform to the common goal of the enterprise.
