Extra resources for Management, Rev Edition
Other institutions speak of executives, and so on. Yet all these institutions have in common the management function, the management task, and the management work. All of them require management. And in all of them, management is the effective, the active organ. Without the institution, there would be no management. But without management, there would be only a mob rather than an institution. The institution is itself an organ of society and exists only to contribute a needed result to society, the economy, and the individual.
THE MANAGER’S RESOURCE: PEOPLE The manager works with a specific resource: people. And the human being is a unique resource, requiring particular qualities in whoever attempts to work with it. “Working” with the human being always means developing him or her. The direction that this development takes decides whether the human being—both as a person and as a resource—will become more productive or cease, ultimately, to be productive at all. This applies, as cannot be emphasized too strongly, not alone to the person who is being managed but also to the manager.
As a specific discipline, management has its own basic problems, its own specific approaches, its own distinct concerns. A manager who understands the discipline of management will still be an effective—perhaps even first-rate—manager with no more than minimum competence in managerial skills and tools. A person who knows only the skills and techniques, without understanding the fundamentals of management, is not a manager but merely a technician. Management is a practice rather than a science. In this, it is comparable to medicine, law, and engineering.
