Managerial Interview Paper
Management philosophy can be argued as set of ideas about best management practices. Management is the art of encouraging people to do their best work to achieve their best results in order to achieve success. As can be seen from the interview, different management philosophies have been adopted by different managers depending on experience, historical background and what they believe is the best practice to acquire desired results. According to Barkley and Saylor 66, management involves optimizing resources that is, getting the most out of technology and people. The target is on managing the project and leading people to a deliverable that achieves total customer satisfaction. The best practice of management dictates that managers are there to manage the process and not to manage people. Let people be their own managers and concentrate on the process of coordinating communication between them. Management philosophy always targets customers as the end and employees as the means to achieving that end (Saylor & Barkley 145).
