Good and bad managers...

Why don't all managers follow the principles of management?? Still they become managers?? Why?? How??


Good and Bad Managers

Because these 14 principles are not part of the job description of a manager. He manages and is free to manage in his own natural style.


14 Management Principles

The 14 principals are not always practical, it depends on your work area and your surroundings. A few things remain the same, but management decisions and management policies change frequently.


Response to Arijit: Culture

Speaking from experience of developing country, the culture of inefficiency and ineffectiveness perpetutated by the highest office of the country makes it challenging for the principles to work. This culture is not only present in the country as a whole but in organisations as well. The general situation of the country's socio-economic and political structure provides poor environment for the managers to practice good management. (Opinion/reflection)
