Management of every organization determines the success and competitiveness of the organization in the market. There are qualities that every manager should have if the organization has to stand and compete with the likes. However, managers need to be well acquitted with the management concepts to help them apply theoretical knowledge to the real business world. There are managers who have been faced with situations which have posed a challenge in terms of settling to a decision.
