For whom the bells toll - Tsunami, 26 December, 2004

"No man is an island,
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.

as well as if a manor of thy friend's or
of thine own were:
any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind,
and therefore never send to know
for whom the bells tolls;
it tolls for thee."

John Donne

Management-ALLY: Part 1

It is a long time since I contributed to my blog. Well, I shall stick to the eternal management excuse - I have been busy.

Management-ALLY is going to be a monologue of Office, Work, Corporate, and of course Management. There is a lot of things I want to write about management, for it contains all the recipes for a smashing bestseller - Action, Comedy, Sex, and Intrigue.

The Webster Dictionary mentions Management as – 1. The act or art of managing things: the conducting or supervising of something (as a business); 2.judicious use of means to accomplish an end.

Peter Drucker, says in his book “Managing in a Time of Great Change” that management (here I mean the modern term of business management) found its genesis around the World War I and came to limelight around the World War II. No other function in history has emer…
