Management in all business and organizational activities is the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives using available resources efficiently and effectively. Management comprises planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization or effort for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. No matter the situation, type of organization, or number of persons, there will always be a need for management to ensure the orderly execution of the desired outcome. The main branches of management are financial, marketing, human resource, strategic, production, service, information technology, and business intelligence.
