Managers Must Manage
Pages 6

A manager’s job should be based on a task to be performed in order to attain the company’s objectives. It should always be a real job – one that makes a visible and, if possible, clearly measurable contribution to the success of the enterprise. It should have the broadest rather than the narrowest scope and authority; everything not expressly excluded should be deemed to be within the manager’s authority. Finally, the manager should be directed and controlled by the objectives of performance rather than by his boss.
