People and Statistics
Remember that in additional to statistical controls, there needs to be organizational controls to make sure
that the customer and people are part of the equation. If one wants to avoid any errors, then one should
seek to do nothing because only then can one be free of errors. However, since reverse logistics is about

In any organization, there is a critical need to consider the customers as well as the
people working in that organization for a maximum profit of the organization. Organizational
control entails the companies’ stipulated rules and standards, which will help the employees, to
control their actions to attain the set vision of the company. Organizational control methods can
be categorized as either formal or informal.
Formal control procedures consist of documented rules and regulations, which are put

coordination between the employees and the managers to ensure that the set goals of the
organization are met. In conclusion, a communication channel will help the employees to get a
better understanding of what is expected of them to ensure effectiveness in their active
In any organization, there is a need for better communication as well as a trust to ensure
that the goals of that organization are met. This will help in ensuring a maximum profit and a
good relationship among the workers, which will help them to work as a team.
