2.1 LITERATURE REVIEW

Management covers a lot of ground. Its focus rangers from understanding entire industries to making and implementing decision to operate in foreign countries. Its leadership, corporate culture, business strategy, organization design, motivation and ethics all rolled up into one. But above all it’s supremely challenging and we think, for that reason its also great fun. We expect that student who read this book we learn a lot about management, about making a difference, about putting together, about getting results and have a good time doing it.

Like other aspects of business, effective management is the result of hard work. The truth is that successfully managing others is an enormously demanding task’s as writers with a lot of experience in both academic and professional setting, we demanded a lot from ourselves when we set out to revise management.

What is management?

According to PETER DRUCKERS, management is work and it has its own skills, its own tools and its own techniques

It can also be defined as the art of getting things done through others efficiently and effectively.

It can be defined as a process by which cooperative group or a person who directs the action of others towards common goals.

According to HENRY FRAYO, management could be defined a planning, controlling organizing, leading directing and decision making. And he was the person that introduced the 14 principles of management which there are:-

1. DIVISION OF LABOUR: - The more people specialize the more efficiently they can perform their duty.

2. AUTHORITY:- Managers have the right, the authority to give order to get things done.

7. REMUNERATION: - Pay for work done should fair to both the employees and the employer.

8. CENTRALIZATION:- Managers should retain final responsibility but should also gives their subordinate enough authority to do their jobs properly.

9. SCALER CHAIN:- A single uninterrupted line of authority (often represented by the neat boxes and lines of an organization chart) should run rank to rant from top management to the lowest level positions in the company.

10. ORDER: - Materials and people should be in the right place at the right time, in particular, people should be in the jobs or positions best suited to them.

11. EQUITY: - Managers should be both friendly and fair to their subordinates.

12. STABILITY AND TENURE OF STAFF: - A high rate of employee turnover is not efficient.
