As there is no universally accepted definition for management, it is difficult to define it. But a simple traditional definition, defines it as the “art of getting things done by others”. This definition brings in two elements namely accomplishment of objectives, and direction of group activities towards the goal. The weaknesses of this definition is that firstly it uses the word “art”, whereas management is not merely an art, but it is both art and science. Secondly, the definition does not state the various functions of a manager clearly.
