Is controlling in project management simply efforts to adhere to baselines or target performance in certain areas ? A simple definition for controlling would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Refer to PMBOK page 613. This page defines what monitoring is and what controlling is as well as what monitoring and controlling process group involves.
