If we are the Manager, We are required to bridge the gap between where an organisation is and where it projects itself to be.... The gap should be analysed and the solution should be provided to the clients... All the critical issues have to be listed and a step by step solution be given. My view on management.

Well, my friend, I am sorry but i don`t agree with the definition that you gave. Management is not just getting a work done by others (this is supervision or guiding or provoking), but management can be by us for us. For example, if you force yourself to do all work on time, you are managing yourself in time, that is called Time Management. Let me give a technical definition of management. Management is a process of Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling. Management can be on a large scale on a organizational basis, or it can be on a small scale of managing own self. Also, it may be strategic or non-strategic. Well, there are complete researches and theories dedicated to the subject of management that is not possible to discuss here. But, notice that, the task of getting work by others (as you said) is not management but it is a part of management and comes under the leading and controlling categories. Happy Mylotting!!

I would not know what management is. I was a farm manager once and I thought of the farm, the people, the animals, the plants and tried to make them work together without too much cost.
