To us, “management” deals with organizations, its operations, oversight, nuances and research of all things which make organizations successful. Our members are researchers, teachers, scholars and practitioners in diverse segments of management. Some research the many aspects of management, explore the workings of successful organizations and leaders, dissect the failures and why they came to be, and overall develop hypotheses through which academics grow their knowledge and practitioners can direct their movements. Others bring their expertise, knowledge and demonstrated leadership to the classroom to train the next generation of leaders. While others are in the field armed with knowledge of history and cutting edge data analysis.
