Management is the art of getting things done through people :Mark Parker Follet.
The above quote implies management to be a process of planning, organizing, leading and controlling all other organizational resources to achieve the stated organizational goals, which in turn would help in bringing up the organizational effectiveness and attaining optimum profits.
