What Exactly is a Management Model?
Sofia, Member
Hello! I am a student and I am writing a work about the Scandinavian management model. After looking through a huge amount of articles, I've realized that there is no a proper definition of a 'management model' as a term.
There are a lot of things about the differences of management models in various contries (like Japan and USA, for instance) but nothing about the simplest definition, and this is important for my paper. Can you please help me and maybe give a piece of advice, where can I find the proper definition of the term 'management model'? It will be also interesting to read your opinion, what do you mean when you say 'the management model'?

Definition of Management Model
Jaap de Jonge, Editor
I think your realization is correct in that there is no universally accepted definition of the term 'management model'. If you think about it, both the word MANAGEMENT and the word MODEL can have quite different meanings in various parts of the world.
However broadly speaking, a 'model' is a simplified way to analyze, describe, or deal with a more complex reality. A model is similar, but not equal, to a theory, method, approach, tool, or instrument.
Also broadly speaking, 'management' is the science or art of organizing and leading organizations (profit and non-profit). For more info on management, our Fayol and Gülick knowledge centers are a good start.
