The success of any organisation depends upon the quality and vision of management to a great extent. In today’s ever-changing and ever-growing corporate sector, it is necessary to adopt and implement the different approaches, styles, principles and practices in management for improving the performances of various resources like physical, financial and human through their optimum and proper utilisation and also for fostering a healthy work culture in the organisation.
