The term "management" in these notes will refer to management within an organization of people.

Organizations must have a purpose to exist. This is sometimes referred to as its "mission". Because organizations are made up of individuals, the individual is the organizations greatest asset. thus management refers to the management of people.

In particular, management is concerned with getting people to do work that has a purpose within the civilization, nation, state, city or society in which the organization resides. In large organizations there can be several layers of management. The highest level may be called executive or top managemnt. However, "executive" management may also refer to anyone near the top of an organization; hence, the term "top management" may be less ambiguous.
