According to Louis A. Allen, “A manager in managing must co-ordinate the work for which he is balancing, timing and integrating”.

In other words, balancing, timing and integrating are the basic techniques of coordination.

a)      Balancing: It means adequate provision of any one thing to support or counterbalance the other.

b)      Timing: It involves synchronizing of the time schedules of different activities in such a way that they support and reinforce one another.

c)      Integrating: It denotes unification of diverse interests and activities with a view to accomplishment of the overall organizational objectives.
