If that's not possible, please search the web. I think it's better for me and you, if I teach you how to find information rather than give it to you.

I really can't understand such kind of replies. Please post if you really like that or leave it.
Don't make the member too bad to be the part of this cite. Even board members should mind this.
Management as books might have deference from experience. let the member learn how to post. I really can't understand this aggressiveness in posting.
How you really can judge one institute is bad or good?...............May be out of curiosity.................!
But you can delete the posts in the threads is it really a kind of good practice. Left to almighty.
"IMPOSSIBLE WORD MEANS I M POSSIBLE", what is the need of this, when you say dont know.
Respect all members and teach them even how to post.

Let me talk about bookish definition first:
Management is an activity to get people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives. Management comprises Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Leading/Directing and Controlling.
Now here we discuss about practical definition of management:-
Responsible person in the organization or a group of people who are really act as a decision maker and responsible for getting the things done are known as management employees and called as Management. Management has experts of Staffing, Directing/Leading, Controlling, Planning and Organizing. One who expert in Staffing may not having ability of controlling or One who having expertness in Planning may not having ability of Staffing. Only because of this Organizations looking for experts in some respected fields to get the things done and that people collectively known as Management.
Hope this will help you.

it might be use for you...
Management focuses on the entire organization from both a short and a long-term perspective. Management is the managerial process of forming a strategic vision, setting objectives, crafting a strategy and then implementing and executing the strategy.
Management goes beyond the organization’s internal operations to include the industry and the general environment. The key emphasis is on issues related to environmental scanning and industry analysis, appraisal of current and future competitors, assessment of core competencies, strategic control and the effective allocation of organizational resources.
In general terms, there are two approaches to management:
-The Industrial Organization Approach: This approach is based on economic theory which deals with issues like competitive rivalry, resource allocation, economies of scale. This approach to management assumes rationality, self interested behavior, profit maximization.
- The Sociological Approach: This approach deals primarily with human interactions. It assumes rationality, satisfying behavior, profit sub-optimality.
Management theories can also be divided into two sets. One is the set that concentrates mainly on efficiency and another is the set that concentrates mainly on effectiveness. Efficiency is about doing things the right way. It involves eliminating waste and optimizing processes. Effectiveness is about doing the right things.
A good management style is a blend of both efficiency and effectiveness. There is no point in acting efficiently if what you are doing will not have the desired effect.
Management techniques can be viewed as either bottom-up, top-down, or collaborative processes.

In practice, forget what the books say. Just use all your senses (more than 5,:icon5:) intuitions, psychology, anything to get the best out of people and lead them onward. In the process they should feel uplifted and motivated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's all. :huh::-D:icon10::idea::confused:

i would have agreed with you, had the question being something like; "...I have studied Management and related concepts; yet I am not able to grasp the essence. i am curious to know, if experienced persons who apply the princiciples of Management, have any other definition of Management than the academic one?... etc."
In the present form, nashbramhall, a Senior Member & Board Moderator is perfectly right in getting irritated. The question is like a person who got a driving Licence (may be without passing a driving test, but "managing" it) asking " What is a car?" or a person with a LLB degree (again may be a "managed" degree) asking. "What is a Court?"
Seen in this light nashbramhall has rightfully responded with certain apprehension about the institute.
This is a forum for HR professional - seasoned or otherwise; who network to gain new knowledge on intricacies & ambiguity of HR issues and its future developments. Such generic question do dilute its seriousness. If you are a sportsman, then you'll understand - would test players prefer to play matches with mohalla cricket team?
And finally my answer to gayu is :
My dear, there are many definitions of "management"; but the concept is so broad & deep that management gurus keep working at it. there are many everydaqy questions (like, why did Ramalinga Raju has to do it? How come a company like GM could not avaoid it? why did US banks get into sub-prime loans and got the whole world deep into this recession shit) to which we are yet to find any answer.
In my opinion, "management" is what certain workers in a big industry told me, some twenty years back:
- MANAGing MEN Tactfully :icon1:
- getting THINGS done (by hook or by crook - added as an after-thought) :icon10:
- knowing everything (as in 'management knows everything') :icon6:

The discipline of management is different form other discipline in some respect. See while for practicing profession like law, medical and Company Law etc. one need to posses an essential prescribed qualification but for practicing management one need not to posses any degree or diploma in the relevant field. One can be a successful manager on the basis of experience and wisdom. Second difference may be the results. A manager is concerned not only with the process of doing something but also with the result. He has to be result oriented.
What you say? Let me have your views on this……….

Congrats for asking the right defination. Primarily management means not all the above stuff, which people have shared with u, but it is to manage ur non- productive, un-skilled, bureacrats bosses and then secondarily it comes to manage ur organisation, Which ur well-wishers have correctly defined. If u learn the primary thing, no doubt u will be successful manager.
