Meaning and Nature of Management
  • Management is the process of designing and
    maintaining an environment in which individuals
    working together in groups, efficiently
    accomplish selected aims.
  • As managers people carry out the managerial
    functions of planning, organizing, staffing,
    leading and controlling
  • Management applies to any kind of organization
  • It applies to managers at all organizational
  • The aim of all managers is the same to create a
  • Managing is concerned with productivity- implies
    efficiency and effectiveness
  • All manage organizations for profit or

Few other definitions
  • Another common view is that "management" is
    getting things done through others.
  • Yet another view, quite apart from the
    traditional view, asserts that the job of
    management is to support employee's efforts to be
    fully productive members of the organizations and
    citizens of the community.

"Leading versus Managing"?
  • A classic definition is that Leaders do the
    right thing and managers do things right.
  • A more standard definition is usually something
    like managers work toward the organizations
    goals using its resources in an effective and
    efficient manner.
  • A leader is interpreted as someone who sets
    direction in an effort and influences people to
    follow that direction.

New Paradigm in Management
  • Driving Forces of Change
  • telecommunications has shrunk the world
  • Increasing diversity of workers
  • Public consciousness
  • third-world countries has joined the global
  • Organizations became responsible to a wider
    community of stakeholders.
  • As a result of the above driving forces,
  • were required to adopt a new paradigm, or view
    on the
  • world, to be more sensitive, flexible and
    adaptable to
  • the demands and expectations of stakeholder

Traits of the New Paradigm
  • Marilyn Ferguson, in The New Paradigm Emerging
    Strategic for Leadership and Organizational
    Change (Michael Ray and Alan Rinzler, Eds., 1993,
    New Consciousness Reader), provides a very
    concise overview of the differences between the
    old and new paradigm.

Old Paradigm New Paradigm
promote consumption at all costs appropriate consumption
people to fit jobs jobs to fit people
imposed goals, top-down decision making autonomy encouraged, worker participation
fragmentation in work and roles cross-fertilization by specialists seeing wide relevance
identification with job identity transcends job description
clock model of company recognition of uncertainty
aggression, competition cooperation
work and play separate blurring of work and play
manipulation and dominance cooperation with nature
struggle for stability sense of change, of becoming
quantitative qualitative as well as quantitative
strictly economic motives spiritual values transcend material gain
polarized transcends polarities
short-sighted ecologically sensitive
rational rational and intuitive
emphasis on short-term solutions recognition that long-range efficiency must take in to account harmonious work environment
centralized operations decentralized operations when possible
runaway, unbridled technology appropriate technology
allopathic treatment of symptoms attempt to understand the whole, locate deep underlying causes of disharmony
Managerial Functions
  1. Planning
  2. Organizing
  3. Staffing
  4. Leading
  5. Controlling

Managerial Functions
  • 1) Planning including identifying goals,
    objectives, methods, resources needed to carry
    out methods, responsibilities and dates for
    completion of tasks. Examples of planning are
    strategic planning, business planning, project
    planning, staffing planning, advertising and
    promotions planning, etc.
  • 2) Organizing resources to achieve the goals in
    an optimum fashion. Examples are organizing new
    departments, human resources, office and file
    systems, re-organizing businesses, etc.
  • 3) Leading
  • including to set direction for the organization,
    groups and individuals and also influence people
    to follow that direction. Examples are
    establishing strategic direction (vision, values,
    mission and / or goals) and championing methods
    of organizational performance management to
    pursue that direction.

Managerial Functions
  • 4) Controlling, or coordinating,
  • the organization's systems, processes and
    structures to reach effectively and efficiently
    reach goals and objectives. This includes ongoing
    collection of feedback, and monitoring and
    adjustment of systems, processes and structures
    accordingly. Examples include use of financial
    controls, policies and procedures, performance
    management processes, measures to avoid risks

The Organization
The Three Basic Functions
Decisions at Different Levels of Management
Management Approaches
  • Managerial Roles Approach by Professor Henry
    Mintzberg of McGill University
  • Management Process or Operational Approach
  • There is a central core of knowledge about
    managing that is pertinent only to the field of
    management. Such matters like line, staff,
    departmentation, managerial appraisal and various
    managerial control techniques involve concepts
    and theories found in situations involving
    managers. Furthermore, this approach absorbs
    knowledge from other fields including systems
    theory, quality and reengineering concepts,
    decision theory, motivation and leadership,
    individual and group behaviour, social systems
    and cooperation and communication plus
    application of mathematical analyses and concepts.

Ten Managerial Roles Identified By Mintzberg
  • Interpersonal Roles
  • Figurehead Role
  • Leader Role
  • Liaison Role
  • Informational Roles
  • Recipient Role
  • Disseminator Role
  • Spokesperson Role
  • Decision Roles
  • Entrepreneurial Role
  • Disturbance-handler Role
  • Resource-allocator Role
  • Negotiator Role

Management Approaches
  • The Systems Approach to Management Process
  • Business is dependant on its external
    environment- industry to which it belongs, the
    economic system and society. So, the enterprise
    receives inputs, transforms them and exports the
    output to the environment

Brief Overview of Contemporary Theories in
  • Contingency Theory
  • Basically, contingency theory asserts that when
    managers make a decision, they must take into
    account all aspects of the current situation and
    act on those aspects that are key to the
    situation at hand.
  • Systems Theory
  • A system is a collection of part unified to
    accomplish an overall goal. If one part of the
    system is removed, the nature of the system is
    changed as well. A system can be looked at as
    having inputs, processes, outputs and outcomes.
    The effect of systems theory in management is
    that writers, educators, consultants, etc. are
    helping managers to look at the organization from
    a broader perspective.

Brief Overview of Contemporary Theories in
  • Chaos Theory
  • chaos theory, recognizes that events indeed are
    rarely controlled They suggest that systems
    naturally go to more complexity, and as they do
    so, these systems become more volatile (or
    susceptible to cataclysmic events) and must
    expend more energy to maintain that complexity.
    As they expend more energy, they seek more
    structure to maintain stability. This trend
    continues until the system splits, combines with
    another complex system or falls apart entirely.
