The evolution of management thought is a process that started since the early days of humans. It began since the period we saw the need to live in groups and build civilisations. Since civilisation began, management has been practiced in one way or the other. Later in the industrial revolution, which brought drastic change and suddenly, the need to develop a more holistic and formal management theory became a necessity.
A brief examination of the modern history will reveal that companies have been putting different management theories into practice. Not only have these helped to increase productivity but they have also improved the quality of services. In the 80s, there was an increase in growth and competitive level in the global economy, as a result of convergence of economies, which shifted focus from traditional management theories as organisations became non-restive as they tried to proffer solution to newer management issues.
Fast forward to today, a career in management is increasingly becoming popular. Big companies are continually looking for management school graduates and postgraduates. Hence it is common for many students to face a dilemma while choosing the right program and the right college, as pursuing a course in management requires a huge amount of time, money and energy, and your whole career depends on it.
