Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices
Management is tasks. Management is a discipline. Peter Drucker's classic text also reminds us that management is also people. Every achievement of management is the achievement of a manager. Every failure is a failure of a manager. People manage rather than "forces" or "facts." The vision, dedication, and integrity of managers determine whether there is management or mismanagement.
