Is Management an Inexact Science?
AQEEL RAZA, Accountant, Pakistan, Member
Social sciences are considered inexact. And indeed, the knowledge and study of management is quite an inexact science for many reasons:
  • There is no laboratory for testing the principles of management.
  • The inclusion of actions by humans in management.
  • Management is based on imaginations and thoughts.
  • Management is already old but there are many changes in its nature.
  • Exact sciences acquire knowledge from experiments and observation of research materials. Management deals a lot with the minds of human beings.
  • Management applies knowledge according to the situation although it is using principles, methods and models to achieve a result.
  • Management is also a science neither visible nor complete like other scientific knowledge. The chance of its total visibility and completion is zero because its principles create different results in different entities, in a different environment and at different times.Sign up for free
