Importance of Coordination - Why Co-ordination is Necessary?

square Why Co-ordination is Necessary?

Co-ordination means to integrate (bring together) all the activities of an organisation. It is done for achieving the goals of the organisation. There must be proper co-ordination throughout the organisation.

Importance of Coordination

According to management experts, co-ordination is necessary because :-

  1. "Co-ordination is the Essence of Management." i.e. co-ordination effects all the functions of management, viz., Planning, Organising, Staffing, etc.
  2. Co-ordination is a function of management.
  3. Co-ordination is a principle of management, and all other principles are included in this one principle, i.e. co-ordination is the "Mother Principle".
  4. According to Mary Parker Follett, Co-ordination is the "Plus value of the group". That is, if there is good Co-ordination then the combined group achievement will be greater than the total of the individual achievement, i.e. 2+2=5. This is impossible in the physical world, but it is possible in human affairs through co-ordination.

square Importance of Coordination

The need and importance of coordination can be judged from points below :-

1. Coordination encourages team spirit

There exist many conflicts and rivalries between individuals, departments, between a line and staff, etc. Similarly, conflicts are also between individual objectives and organisational objectives. Coordination arranges the work and the objectives in such a way that there are minimum conflicts and rivalries. It encourages the employees to work as a team and achieve the common objectives of the organisation. This increases the team spirit of the employees.

2. Coordination gives proper direction

There are many departments in the organisation. Each department performs different activities. Coordination integrates (bring together) these activities for achieving the common goals or objectives of the organisation. Thus, coordination gives proper direction to all the departments of the organisation.

3. Coordination facilitates motivation

Coordination gives complete freedom to the employees. It encourages the employees to show initiative. It also gives them many financial and non-financial incentives. Therefore, the employees get job satisfaction, and they are motivated to perform better.

4. Coordination makes optimum utilisation of resources

5. Coordination helps to achieve objectives quickly

Coordination helps to minimise the conflicts, rivalries, wastages, delays and other organisational problems. It ensures smooth working of the organisation. Therefore, with the help of coordination an organisation can achieve its objectives easily and quickly.

6. Coordination improves relations in the organisation

The Top Level Managers co-ordinates the activities of the Middle Level Managers and develops good relations with them. Similarly, the Middle Level Managers co-ordinates the activities of the Lower Level Managers and develops good relations with them. Also, the Lower Level Managers co-ordinates the activities of the workers and develops good relations with them. Thus, coordination overall improves the relations in the organisation.

7. Coordination leads to higher efficiency

Efficiency is the relationship between Returns and Cost. There will be higher efficiency when the returns are more and the cost is less. Since coordination leads to optimum utilisation of resources it results in more returns and low cost. Thus, coordination leads to higher efficiency.
