What is Management?

Management has been defined by various authors/ authorities in various ways. So, the definitions of management are numerous. A few often-quoted definitions are:

“ The process of planning, organizing, leading and controlling the work to reach stated organizational goals (James A. F. Stoner, et. al., 1997).”

“ The process of planning, organizing, leading and controlling the work to an organization’s human, financial, physical, and information resources to achieve organizational goals in an efficient and effective manner”(Griffin, 1984).

All these definitions put emphasis on the attainment of organizational goals for the best use of organization’s resources. Many of us are act to define management as “ getting things done through other people in an efficient manner.” The most acceptable definition of management could be the act of “designing and maintaining an environment in which individuals, working together in group, efficiently accomplish selected aims.”

Now let us move from the broad topic of management to the more specific topic of human resource management.
