Management - A Misunderstood Societal Function
Zu finden in: Self-Organization and Management of Social Systems (Seite 80 bis 93), 1984
If in writing this paper I prefer to use the term “management” rather than “leadership”, it is not because of a predilection for modern words but rather to avoid any misunderstanding. Leadership denotes in its most fundamental meaning “the leadership of people”. When it is used in the context of heading an organization, the concept of leadership has only a metaphorical meaning. The metaphor of leadership, however, does not reflect adequately the complexities implied in leading social systems. The result of using the term leadership when referring to heading a whole organization is that leadership of organizations is equated with leadership of people in organizations. The term “management” by contrast does not convey such a person oriented meaning. It is institutions that are managed, not people.
