Since 1900 there has been a virtual management explosion.* It is now universally recognized that the success of many enterprises depends largely on good administrators. Meeting today’s intense competition puts a great premium upon the development of highly creative leaders, and effective management is ever more critical as organizations grow in size and complexity. The wealth of industry and of nations, government’s ability to rule effectively, and indeed our place in the world affairs are all dependent on activities that are highly coordinated among many leaders possessing great skill and resourcefulness.
