Concept of Man in Management

Ishwar Dayal The concept of man in management has been influenced significantly by three considerations. First, the experience of practising managers. Second, the experimental, if limited, data from sociological research by early social scientists. Third, the interpretation of cumulative research data from experience and from behavioural scientists moving towards a more complex formulation about the nature of man.

Training Is Not All

FINISHING the last page of the book left me both gratiiird and dismayed. Gratified that an educator had undertaken to write 13 chapters on a wide range of subjects from management of co-operatives, small and large industry, to education, planning and the emerging social and economic order. Dismayed because the superior capabilities of the author do not show up to full advantage in the treatment of the subjects. The objective of the book, which is to examine the management gap in the developing economy in order to benefit managements, educational institutions, etc, remains unfulfilled.

Organisational Development An Interim Balance-Sheet- A Comment

Balance-Sheet A Comment Ishwar Dayal Nitish R De ("Organisational Development; An Interim Balance-Sheet", Review of Management, May 29, 1971) has rightly pointed out that the target of change in OD is the total organisation or a discrete segment of it rather than a chosen activity such as cost control, O and M, management develop- ment, etc. The development of an organisation is seen as a total effort; change in the segments does not always ensure change in the whole. The segments may have their own. specific features hut the whole is not a sum-total of the parts.

The myths of a business organisation, like those of a community, have their foundation in partial reality at a given period of time but they scarcely ever represent the total reality. They satisfy a variety of social and psychological needs of the system and of its managers. They help provide rationality to behaviour in the organisation and justification for managerial inactivity or failure; they minimise anxiety by transferring managerial failures to external events or to the powers that guide their destiny.

Glossed-Over Systems

Ishwar Dayal Management Development and Management by Objectives by Andrew M Brown; Somaiya Publications,
FOR the management of complex organisations, sophistication in diagnosis, analysis, and decision-making has become necessary. This is because of three major features of modern industry, viz, size, dependence on the appropriate mix of specialist and generalist knowledge and skills, and balancing of changing forces. The sources of data for decision-making, as well as the processes of acceptance of decisions by the managerial hierarchy, are varied.
