About The Book

Quality, ethics and global business environment are posing several challenges to current business managers. Managing an organisation, irrespective of size, is an excitement, experience and a big challenge for them. If they can give an insight into principles of management, internalise them and start adapting them to satisfy the situational needs, they can become effective managers. The organisations in which they work will have a steady and sustainable growth. Successful managers take positive and sound managerial decisions based on these time-honoured management principles.

Many great thinkers on management, and "Management Gurus", have contributed for the sustainability of management principles. Four management principles (Planning, Organising, Leading and controlling) enunciated by Henry Fayol about hundred years ago, have bacome today's basic mantras of management process. Management principles are not static and will be changing with the growth of economy, society and passage of time. Effective managers visualise the change and design their operations accordingly. Management facilitates managers to take sound managerial decisions.

Management explains its domain in terms of principles and practices to manage men (human factor) and material (non-human factor) in an organization. An attempt is made in this work to blend time-honoured management principles with modern management practices, supported by information technology. Managers can lean on these principles to formulate their strategies and adopt them for the sustainable growth of their organizations. Written in a simple style, readers can easily understand the various management principles and practices. In this backdrop, this work - "Management - Multi-dimensional Approach" is produced which provides a comprehensive picture on management principles and practices.
