Historical perspective

  • Richard Pettinger


The subject of management has been studied over the centuries with the view of establishing what constitutes a successful manager or, in the closely related field, what constitutes a successful leader. The subject of leadership is dealt with fully later in the book. At this stage, suffice it to say that while the two concepts are closely related, they are not synonymous — a good leader is not necessarily a good manager; nor is a good manager always a brilliant leader (though they should always be at least capable).
