Definition: A Manager is the person responsible for planning and directing the work of a group of individuals, monitoring their work, and taking corrective action when necessary. For many people, this is their first step into a management career.

Managers may direct workers directly or they may direct several supervisors who direct the workers. The manager must be familiar with the work of all the groups he/she supervises, but does not need to be the best in any or all of the areas. It is more important for the manager to know how to manage the workers than to know how to do their work well.

A manager may have the power to hire or fire employees or to promote them. In larger companies, a manager may only recommends such action to the next level of management. The manager has the authority to change the work assignments of team members.

A manager's title reflects what he/she is responsible for. An Accounting Manager supervises the Accounting function. An Operations Manager is responsible for the operations of the company. The Manager of Design Engineering supervises engineers and support staff engaged in design of a product or service. A Night Manager is responsible for the activities that take place at night. There are many management functions in business and, therefore, many manager titles. Regardless of title, the manager is responsible for planning, directing, monitoring and controlling the people and their work.
The manager is the one who can manage the adverse situations in the company. He should be a leader who never quits in negative growth of the company and support employees by motivating and thus support the employer in continuing the business.

I found out origin of word manage from the net.
The verb manage comes from the Italian maneggiare (to handle — especially tools), which in turn derives from the Latin manus (hand). The French word mesnagement (later ménagement) influenced the development in meaning of the English word management in the 17th and 18th centuries
A manager is an individual who is entrusted by an organisation to plan, organise, direct and control work in line with organisational strategy, towards goal attainment. Dependent on functional area, a person's role as manager may be determined based on span of control e.g., Finance Department where you can have a Finance Director, Finance Manager, Accountant, Finance Supervisor, Clerical staff OR in an I.T. or Financial Institution where managers are appointed based on portfolio or project size / financial value.
A manager is one who plans, controls, coordinates and directs an organization to achieve its objectives, goals, vision and mission. The most important thing he will be doing is the management of choices or alternatives before him/her.
Manager is a person who manage things well, and plans accordingly to make his work done by other people efficiently in order to reach ultimate goals of organisation................
A Manager is a person who can utilize the resouses which have been given by the management. Shyam chauhan
A Manager has to manage things without giving excuses. He has to foresee the obstacles/bottlenecks and make
alternate plans( PlanA,PlanB etc). He has to inform his superiors about possibility of failure of an objective before the failure occurs.
