Management is a dynamic profession.  Not only do managers interact with employees and customers, they also monitor and evaluate the economic, social, political and technological influence of the greater environment in which the organization operates.  Managers generally perform the same functions in an organization although each managerial position is somewhat unique.  Primary functions include: establishing organizational goals and developing long and short range strategies to accomplish these goals; using managerial tools to forecast future developments in the economy, the industry and the organization; and providing direction and coordination of the organizational workforce.  Managers acquire and combine human, financial, physical and informational resources to produce a product or service desired by some segment of society.  A manager takes charge of this process and is responsible for its success.  Students in management study functions of management, human behavior, motivation and related subjects such as human resource management and management of technology.
