“To manage is to forecast and plan, to organize, to command, to co-ordinate and to control”

Henri Fayol


The idea of management is using one’s time and energy and talents to accomplish some objectives. The most difficult part of management in the business world is to manage other people. If you are managing someone else, then you need to find a way to use their talents and their time and their energy to accomplish either an individual or a group objective. It is much easier to do if you have your goals and objectives, philosophy and concepts clear in your mind. You have to make people identify with the goals you have set for them. It is very important when a person can identify with the objectives of the organization. In this case person is much more likely to do a good job and to make your job as a manager easier. Management is manipulation to accomplish a preconceived objective. It can be any number of different types of objectives: business, personal, financial, humanitarian. So successful management takes a whole lot of varied things and harnesses them to accomplish the preconceived objective. It directs them in one way. A good manager extracts the ones which are a value in accomplishing something, and he does not waste his time with others which are of no use.

Obviously, goals occasionally have to be modified or changed. It is generally the job of a company's top managers to consider the needs of the future, and to take responsibility for innovation, without which any organization can only expect a limited life. Top managers also have to manage a business's relations with customers, suppliers, distributors, bankers, investors, neighboring communities, public authorities. They also deal with any major crises which arise. An important aspect of a manager’s activity is staff recruitment and appraisal. A good manager must be practical, authoritarian, confident, supportive, intellectual, adaptive and flexible, sociable and friendly. Top managers are appointed and supervised and advised (or dismissed) by a company's board of directors.
