dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Institute of Administrative Studies University of Wroclaw Management Process
dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Father of scientific management Frederick W. Taylor (1856-1915): The art of management has been defined as knowing exactly what you want men to do and then seeing that they do it in the best and cheapest way.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Old adage A manager does his work by getting other people to do theirs.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Frederick W. Taylor: The old fashioned dictator does not exist under Scientific Management. The man at the head of the business under Scientific Management is gov- erned by rules and laws which have been devel- oped through hundreds of experiments just as much as the workman is, and the standards de- veloped are equitable. F.W. Taylor: A very serious objection has been made to the use of the word ‘science’ in this connection. […] I think the proper answer to this criticism is to quote President professor McLaurin, of the Institute of Technology, of Boston. He recently defined the word science as ‘classified or organized knowledge of any kind’ […].
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Ricky W. Griffin: Management is a set of activities (including planning and decision making, organizing, lead- ing, and controlling) directed at an organization’s resources (human, financial, physical, and infor- mation) with the aim of achieving organizational goals in an efficient and effective manner.

Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Anglo-Irish novelist Maria Edgeworth (1767-1849): All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Ricky W. Griffin: A manager is someone whose primarily responsibility is to carry out the management process. In particular, a manager is someone who plans and makes decisions, organizes, leads, and controls human, financial, physical, and information resources. The functions or stages of management do not usually occur in a tidy, step- by-step fashion. At any given time a manager is likely to be engaged in several activities simultaneously. Peter F. Drucker Who is a manager can be defined only by man’s function and by the contribution he is expected to make. And the function which distinguishes the manager above all others is his educa- tional one. The one contribution he is uniquely expected to make is to give others vision and ability to perform. It is vision and moral responsibility that […] define manager.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat The first stage of the management process is planning and decision-making. Planning means setting an organization’s goals and deciding how best to achieve them. Decision-making involves selecting a course of action from a set of alterna- tives. Planning and decision-making help maintain managerial effectiveness by serving as guides for future activities / help managers allocate their time and resources.
If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat The second stage of the management process is organizing. Once a manager has set goals and developed a workable plan, the next management stage is to organize the people and other resources neces- sary to carry out the plan. Specifically, organizing involves how activities and resources are to be grouped.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat The third stage of the management process is leading. Leading is the set of activities used to get people to work together to advance the in- terests of the organization. Some people consider leading to be the most important and the most challenging of all managerial functions.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat The fourth and final stage of the management process is controlling, or monitoring the organiza- tion’s progress towards its goals. Controlling helps ensure the effectiveness and efficiency needed for successful management.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Effective managers must be capable of moving back and forth among the stages of the ma- nagement process as circumstances warrant, and must juggle multiple functions and activities sim- ultaneously. Managers cannot afford to be effective in or enjoy performing only some of the functions and activities, since all are important.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Peter F. Drucker Categories of manager’s work: setting objectives organizing motivating and communicating measuring developing people Every one of these categories can be divided further into sub-categories, and each of sub-categories could be dis- cussed in a book of its own. The work of the manager, in other words, is complex. And every one of its categories requires different qualities and qualifications.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat A manager, in the first place, sets objectives: he determines what the objectives should be he determines what the goals in each area of objectives should be he decides what has to be done to reach these ob- jectives he makes the objectives effective by communicating them to the people whose performance is needed to attain them
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Secondly, a manager organizes: he analyses the activities, decisions and relations need- ed he classifies the work he divides the work into manageable activities he further divides the activities into manageable jobs he groups the jobs into an organizational structure he selects people for the jobs to be done
Management Process Andrew Carnegie - a man who knew how to enlist the service of better men than himself.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Next a manager motivates and communicates (makes a team out of the people that are respon- sible for various jobs): he does it through the practices with which he mana-ges he does it in his own relation to the men he manages he does it through incentives and rewards for successful work he does it through his promotion policy he does it through constant communication with his su- bordinates and his superiors
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat The fourth basic element in the work of the ma- nager is the job of measurement: he establishes measuring yardsticks he sees to it that each man in the organization has measurements available to him which are focused on the performance of the whole organization and which at the same time focus on the work of the individual and help him do it he analyses performance, appraises it and interprets it he communicates both the meaning of the measure- ments and their findings to his subordinates as well as to his superiors
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Finally, a manager develops people (through the way he manages he makes it easy or difficult for them to develop themselves): he directs people or misdirects them he brings out what is in them or he stifles them he strengthens their integrity or he corrupts them he trains them to stand upright and strong or he de- forms them
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Peter F. Drucker: Setting objectives, organizing, motivating and communicating, mea- suring and developing people are formal, classifying categories. Only a manager’s experience can bring them to life, concrete and mean- ingful. But because they are formal, they apply to every manager and to everything he does as a manager. They can therefore be used by every manager to appraise his own skill and performance, and to work systematically on improving himself and his performance as a manager. Being able to set objectives does not make a man manager, just as ability to tie a small knot in confined space does not make a man a surgeon. But without ability to set objectives a man cannot be an adequate manager, just as a man cannot do a good surgery who cannot tie small knots. And as a surgeon becomes a better surgeon by improving his knot-tying skill, a manager becomes a better manag- er by improving his skill and performance in all five categories of his work.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Kinds of managers by level of management top managers (they manage the overall organization; common titles: president and CEO) middle managers (they bridge the upper and lower levels of the organization; common titles: plant manager, operations manager, and division head) first-line managers (they supervise and coordinate the activities of operating employees; common titles: super- visor, coordinator, and office manager)
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat My main job was developing talent. I was a gar- dener providing water and other nourishment to our top 750 people. Of course, I had to pull out some weeds, too. Jack Welch Former CEO of General Electric A man of words and not of deeds Is like a garden full of weeds.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Kinds of managers by area of management marketing managers financial managers operations managers human-resource managers administrative managers public-relations managers research and development managers, and so on They are concerned with establishing and managing the systems that create an organization’s products and services. Typical responsibilities of operations managers include production control, inventory control, quality control, plant layout, and site selection. Administrative, or general, managers are not associated with any particular specialty. E.g. a hospital administrator.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Managerial skills technical interpersonal conceptual diagnostic communication decision-making time-management The skills necessary to accomplish or understand the specific kind of work being done in an organization. The ability to communicate with, understand, and motivate individuals and groups. The ability to think in the abstract. The ability to visualize the most appropriate response to a situation. The ability to both effectively convey ideas and information to others and effectively receive ideas and information from others. The ability to correctly recognize and define problems and opportunities and then select an appropriate course of action to solve problems and capitalize on opportunities. The ability to prioritize work, to work efficiently, and to delegate appropriately.
Management Process dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Scope of management Management is applicable to all organizations (both profit-seeking, and not-for-profit). In other words, any group of two or more persons work- ing together to achieve a goal and having human, financial, physical, or informational resources at its disposal requires the practice of management.
Concluding Remark dr hab. Jerzy Supernat Management manages by making decisions and by seeing that those decisions are implemented. Harold S. Geneen (1910-1997)
