Planning, Directing, and Controlling

A clever sign hanging on the wall of a business establishment: "The Managers are paid to manage the work-- If There Were No Problems we wouldn't require Managers." This suggested that all organizations have problems, and it is management's responsibility to deal with those problems. While there is some truth to this characterization, it is possibly more reflective of a "not so impressive" organization that is moving from one crisis to another. The True managerial talent goes beyond just dealing with the problems at hand.

What exactly the term managing means? Managing requires number of skill sets. Among those skills are leadership, vision, and the ability to procure and mobilize financial and the human resources. All of these tasks should be executed with an understanding of how actions influence the human behaviour within, and external to, organization. In addition, good managers must have endurance to tolerate challenges and setbacks while trying to forge ahead. To effectively manage an operation also requires follow through and execution. But, each management action is predicated upon some particular decision. Thus, good decision making is critical to being a successful manager.
