At present the industrially developed countries have made this branch of knowledge too rich. No Organization can survive without lacking any factors like efficient Management. Now a day’s doctors, engineers, army officer and executives of distinguished discipline are much more eager to pursue M.B.A Degree. Because it is now realized to all sectors of professionals that an efficient management is immense needed in irrespective of areas in world. Management belongs to multidimensional knowledge which are needed to the Organization to be successful. It has distinguished branches. The two of them are important like Human Resources Management (HRM) and Materials Management.

Management is involved with all aspects of human life. From rocking chair to graveyard and religious place to business organization Management exists there to. All sorts of activities are done systematically following management knowledge.

Why this would be happened. Because of lack of proper guidance from the guardian this must be happened. Here guidance denotes management.

Management is surrounded by some functions like planning, Organizing. Staffing, Directing, Co-ordination, Leadership, Motivating and Controlling These functions are performed sequentially and smoothly with a view to achieve goals and objectives of the Organization. If there is any disruption of these functions it would be difficult to achieve organizational goals. Management creates both social and entrepreneurial leaders. Without good leadership no society, no venture can survive. The leaders have the charismatic power of influencing people to be loyal and dutyful towards the concern Organization, This is also contribution of Management.

business organization.
