    As far as a supervisor is concerned, resources are all the things that help him do a job of work. To a supervisor, resources are: (Select Three)

    • A.

      Minutes/time

    • B.

      Gifts

    • C.

      Materials

    • D.

      Money

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Minutes/time
    C. Materials
    D. Money
    Explanation
    A supervisor considers minutes/time as a resource because it is essential for planning and scheduling tasks. Materials are also considered a resource as they are necessary for carrying out the job effectively. Money is another resource as it is required for purchasing materials and compensating employees. Gifts, however, are not typically considered resources in the context of a supervisor's job.

    Without a doubt, machines are everyone's most valuable resource.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement cannot be considered as universally true. While machines can be valuable resources in certain contexts, they may not hold the same level of importance for everyone. Different individuals and industries may prioritize other resources such as human capital, knowledge, or natural resources. Therefore, it is incorrect to claim that machines are everyone's most valuable resource.

    Most of the supervisor's time is used up in directing the work activities of his            resource.

    • A.

      Conceptual

    • B.

      Technical

    • C.

      Human

    Correct Answer
    C. Human
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Human." This is because supervisors primarily spend their time directing the work activities of their resources, which refers to the people or employees they are responsible for managing. They are involved in tasks such as assigning work, providing guidance and support, monitoring progress, and resolving any issues or conflicts that may arise. Therefore, the supervisor's role is centered around the human aspect of managing and leading their team.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Materials are often referred to as 'consumables' because they are items that are used up or depleted in the process of creating or producing something. This term is commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, construction, and maintenance, where materials like raw materials, chemicals, fuels, or even office supplies are consumed or used up during operations. Therefore, it is true that materials are also referred to as 'consumables'.

    • A.

      Set objectives that are clear.

      Make a daily 'to-do' list.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Set objectives that are clear.
    B. Make a daily 'to-do' list.
    Explanation
    Setting clear objectives and making a daily 'to-do' list can help a supervisor make better use of time. Clear objectives provide a focus and direction for the supervisor's tasks, allowing them to prioritize and allocate their time effectively. A daily 'to-do' list helps the supervisor stay organized and ensures that important tasks are not overlooked or forgotten. By having a clear plan and prioritizing tasks, the supervisor can optimize their time management and productivity.

    Explanation
    A good communicator has the ability to effectively convey information and ideas to others, which can greatly impact the productivity and performance of a team or organization. By clearly articulating goals, providing clear instructions, and fostering open and transparent communication, a good communicator can motivate and inspire their team members to work well and achieve desired outcomes. Therefore, it is true that communication is important in getting people to work well.

    A supervisor has the responsibility for his department's budget, but sometimes this would be his employer's responsibility.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a supervisor is typically responsible for managing and overseeing the budget of their department, not their employer's budget. While supervisors may provide input or recommendations to their employer regarding budgetary decisions, the ultimate responsibility lies with the employer or higher-level management.
