Kinetic control

How does the concept of "kinetic control" or "kinetically controlled reactions" work?

The potential outcome of a reaction is usually influenced by the rate of product formation which are kinetic factors

If a reaction is kinetically controlled, that means generally, the temperature is low so the reaction is not controlled by thermodynamic properties but by the kinetics or by the rate of products that can be formed. On the other hand, if a reaction is thermodynamically controlled, the reaction is controlled by the thermodynamic properties of the reaction, and that generally happens at higher temperatures.
