Worker told about his experience of field work.The SHGs are promoted by the Government as if women in India may not be resourceful enough to be entrepreneurs. When the SHGs arrange training facilities to carry out certain kind of work which are suitable for women in India, bank must arrange financial assistance to carry out manufacturing and trading activities, arranging marketing facilities while the Governments will procure the product of SHGs, arrange for enhancing the capacity of women in terms of leadership quality and arranging for the management of SHGs by themselves so as to have administrative capacity. As a social movement with government support. SHGs become more or less a part and parcel of the society.
We also discussed on our field work training that was also based on the self help group making. The supervisor told about the history of the SHG.

Social Welfare Administration

Planning – Today the supervisor told about the planning process of the NGO. He told that we make the plan according to the vision and mission of the NGO. We take all staff senior members into confidence and take their suggestions for the particular project. He told that board members helped in planning the project. He told that Project planning is part of project management, which relates to the use of schedules such as charts to plan and subsequently report progress within the project environment. Initially, the project scope is defined and the appropriate methods for completing the project are determined.
Organization – It is the process of bringing together physical, financial and human resources and developing productive relationship amongst them for achievement of organizational goals. Organizing as a process involves:
    Identification of activities.
    Classification of grouping of activities.
    Assignment of duties.
    Delegation of authority and creation of responsibility.
    Coordinating authority and responsibility relationships.
Staffing – Staffing is a continuous function. A new enterprise employs people to fill up staff positions in the organization. In an established concern, the deaths/ retirements of employees and the frequent changes in the objectives and the organization itself make staffing a continuous function of management.
    Manpower Planning (estimating man power in terms of searching, choose the person and giving the right place).
    Recruitment, Selection & Placement.
    Training & Development.
    Performance Appraisal.
    Promotions & Transfer.
Directing – Mere planning, organizing, and staffing are not sufficient to set the tasks in motion. Management has well-coordinated plans, properly established duty- authority relations, and able personnel, yet it is through the function of direction that the manager is able to make the employees accomplish their tasks by making them integrate their individual efforts with the interest and objectives of the enterprise.

It calls for properly motivating, communicating with, and leading the subordinates. Motivation induces and inspires the employees to perform better, while through good leadership, a manager is able to make his subordinates work with zeal and confidence.
Coordinating - Coordination, as a separate function of management.However, coordination, being all pervasive and encompassing every function of management, is considered to be more an important managerial essence than a separate management function. Poor coordination is attributed to failure in performance of all the above-listed management functions.
Coordination deals with harmonizing work relations and efforts at all levels for achieving some common purpose. It may be described as unifying and achieving harmony among individual efforts for the purpose of accomplishing group goals. The whole idea of coordination is to adjust, reconcile, and synchronize individual efforts so that group efforts become more effective and help to achieve some common objectives.
Reporting – that is keeping those to whom the executive is responsible informed as to what is going on, which thus includes keeping himself and his subordinates informed through records, research, and inspection. Written reports are documents which present focused, salient content to a specific audience. Reports are often used to display the result of an experiment, investigation, or inquiry. The audience may be public or private, an individual or the public in general. Reports are used in government, business, education, science, and other fields.
Budgeting - with all that goes with budgeting in the form of planning, accounting and control. Supervisro told about the process of making the budget for a particular project
