What is the definition of management?

Management can be described as the process of using resources in an optimal way in order to ensure efficiency and effectiveness, and to achieve certain objectives. In this context, resources include human resources, or employees. Proper management plays a very important role in the success of an organisation or a project.


What skills will I learn by studying management?

Good managers have a diverse range of skills and abilities:



    • They have good communication and interpersonal skills.

    • They are able to show empathy towards others.

    • They have the ability to motivate a team.

    • They can think critically, and are good at solving problems.

    • They have strategic planning skills.

    • They have good time management skills.

    • They are flexible, and can adapt well to change.

    • They are well-organised.

    • They are able to take the initiative when the situation requires it.

    • They have basic financial skills.


While a number of these skills come more naturally to some people than to others, most of them can be acquired through studying towards management courses, as well as through practical work experience. Different management courses place emphasis on different management skills, so it is up to you to determine which course would be best suited to your training needs.
