He created a hospital that specialized in research and treatment of catastrophic diseases and illnesses. It was not until 2005 that St Jude’s added on a massive expansion that heightened the hospitals efforts to find cures, treatments, vaccines, and rehabilitation for children. This paper will include an explanation of how internal and external factors affect the four functions of management, and how management uses delegation to control factors and functions.
