Principles of Coordination
1. Direct personal contact: Coordination is best achieved through direct personal contact with people. Direct face to face communication is most beneficial.
2. Early beginning: Coordination can be achieved more easily if it is planned in the early stage of planning and policy making. Plan should be based on mutual participation. Initial coordination also improves the quality of plans.
3. Reciprocity: Reciprocity refers to Mutuality among the employees working in the organisation. It states that all factors in a given situation are interdependent and interrelated.
4. Continuity: It is an on-going or never ending process. As long as there is planning and execution, coordination is needed.
