Lets redefine participants in Management

A few days back I was addressing a set of audience and discussing who management was. The genesis of this discussion was my observations during multiple conversations where people highlighted some situations holding “management” responsible. Indeed the leadership must assume the responsibility especially for the things didn’t go well however in broader sense, I always debate the usage of “management” to identify certain individuals. I could never decode this word and its constituents, though deep in my heart, I know that the reference is for top few leaders of the team or the organization, depending upon the context. This thought process classifying the group in Management and Non-Management may sometimes be self-defeating in a team environment.  This approach may still find a place in traditional hierarchical setup operating with “bosses” and “subordinates” but with changing global perspective on people, the approach certainly calls for a relook.
Corporate climate is changing every day and moving away from traditional centralised management with a greater pace. Successful organizations are enhancing accountability, independence, empowerment and participation of their employees in the management. Participative management increases performance, productivity and motivation. A broader base of participants in management makes the decision making process very effective and collective. Managers must now quickly equip themselves to understand, accept and practice to respond to this wakeup call. And gradually, it would be interesting to observe that how management gets redefined!
