Development of management trough

 

Management as a practice has an almost unlimited history. Visualize a group of prehistoric people attempting to develop a device that would help transport heavy objects. Given a modern label, the caveperson suggesting this development is the head of product research and development.

The project of building the curious new circular device was turned over to a group of people who had hands-on access to raw material. Because the developers of the wheel did not constitute a business enterprise, they handed over the technology of the wheel to all interested parties (in prehistoric times, patents were not available).

Management as a formal study, in comparison to a practice, began in the 1700s as part of the Industrial Revolution. Here we take a brief look at management, covering both historical developments and various approaches to understanding it. The anchor points to our discussion are as follows:

1. The classical approach (scientific management and administrative management)

2. The behavioral approach

3. Quantitative approaches

4. The systems perspective

5. The contingency approach

6. The information technology approach and beyond
