Brief Explanation of Basics of Management: 

1.Managing External Environment & Organizational Culture:

The external environment denotes the conditions within which the organization works which generally can’t be controlled or altered, such as the political, social, demographic & economic environment. Managing the external environment effectively by carefully monitoring the environment, collecting information and analyzing it is very important in effective management. These elements will be discussed in one of the channel’s books, which is the “Strategic Management, 2017 – Fred & Forest R. David, Pearson, U.S.A”. With respect to organizational culture, we discussed it before in a previous book, which is: Organization: Behavior, Structure & Processes”. The book is fourth in the 1st year of the channel.

2.Managing in the Global Environment:

A lot of global products are extremely popular around the world, such as Iphone, Galaxy, Gillette … The innovation of these products is a result of effective global management, which is one of the important managerial basics nowadays. This topic will be fully discussed in one of the channel’s books, which is: “International Management 2017, Helen Deresky, Pearson, U.S.A.”

3.Managing Diversity:

Diversity is simply having a unique mixture of employment workforce with reference to age, gender, religion, abilities/disabilities … This diverse workforce is one of the most important management basics because it ensures having the most talented workforce who collaborate with each other effectively to achieve common organizational goals.

  1. Managing Social Responsibility and Ethics:

4.Managing Social Responsibility and Ethics:

As long as the organization works within a society, it has a humanitarian and business responsibility towards this society by effectively participating in the prosperity and wellness of it. Thus, managing social responsibility is one of the basics of management in today’s workplace. In addition, managing ethics and doing business ethically are parts of organization’s sustainability and crucial aspects of management in today’s workplace. These issues will be discussed in details in one of the channel’s books, which is: “Organizational Ethics, Craig E. Johnson, Sage Publications, U.S.A., 2019”.

      Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you so much for your comment. I’m extremely glad & proud of that. With respect to your question, I have received several comments similar to you. Below I quote for you my reply at one of them. I hope that it suffices.

      Quote:
      “Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you so much for your comment. First, most newspapers have online presence. Second, the reason I believe for reading papers refer to the customers’ culture, behavior & preference. Some people, especially elderly, got used to purchase their daily newspapers and read it. This gives them stronger feeling of authenticity & enjoyment. Another reason is that newspapers have known publishers, while owners of online content might be difficult to be identified. This puts online content, despite its easy reach, on the risk of lack of integrity and authenticity. That’s why in our website we rely on the best and most updated English managerial and leadership references in delivering our content using our unique approach of simplicity, enjoyment & practicality.
