The more I think about Management the more are my thoughts that it is an Art.
If composing a poem or music is an art, why not treat management likewise?
Composing a poem demands to select and put words next to each other in a way that will make their combination explode, so to speak, in the reader’s mind.
Similarly, composing music involves selecting and putting notes next to each other in a way that they will powerfully stir the listener’s emotions.
And what about management?
Managing an organization is selecting, placing and directing people at work in a way that the combined effort will magnify the result of simply adding up their individual contributions.
In any of the three, knowledge is, of course, a prerequisite.
If we call art the acts of composing a poem or music, why not call management so?
After all, besides composing and directing, management has a balancing act too!
