Don hinges evolution of management on human behaviours
The nature of management as a practice is continually shaped by circumstances and situations within the human nature, organization, and environment, an Associate Professor of International Business and Entrepreneurship, Kwara State University, Prof. Muritala Awodun has said.
The Don, who spoke at the Nigerian Institute of Management (Chartered), (NIM) Corporate Members’ forum in Lagos, explained that human nature, organization and the environment play significant roles in the evolution of what management as a practice is presently.
Prof Awodun, who spoke on the theme, ‘Management yesterday, today and tomorrow’, said as the nature of man changes, as the principal player in management, the concept of management is expected to change also.According to him, as the nature of organisations change, the concept of management will respond, adding that as the nature of the environment changes, the management concept will not remain stagnant but will also change.
Awodun, who also doubles as the Executive Chairman, Kwara State Internal Revenue Service, said: “The practice of management, which we call managing, like every other practices, is an art based on the science of management. It is knowing how to do things based on the realities of situations. It will continue to evolve, therefore, as circumstances and situations dictates.”
Earlier, in address, the President and Chairman of Council, NIM (Chartered), Prof. Olukunle Iyanda, described the forum as a value-added service to its corporate members and also provides an avenue for the Institute to directly interact with its corporate members.
In addition, he said it affords corporate members an opportunity to interact with one another and explore opportunities for collaboration and cooperation in areas of mutual interest.“I must also add that this forum is in pursuit of our team’s decision to involve our corporate members more in the activities of the Institute.
“We made this policy decision on assumption of office because we realised that corporate members of the Institute, which were pivotal to the Institute’s development at its inception, are no longer as visible as they used to be in the affairs of the Institute,” he added.
