A visit to any of the state organization convinces one of clear lack of
managerial know how in the organization. There are indiscipline, authoritarian
leadership style, and the situation gets worse as one get to the lower levels
of the organizational hierarchy. All resources are very poorly utilized in the
Policies act as deterrent rather than facilitator of
decision-making, there is over concentration of decision making in one person
and delegation is non-existence, where it exist, responsibility is delegated
and commensurate authority is withheld.
The management cadre, which is a siniquonon for economic development, is
lacking. The government in many instances has assumed the function of
entrepreneurs and taken over the managerial functions. Instances abound to
convince every one that the government has not fared well as a good manager and
has even performed worse than private entrepreneurs.

3.1 Analysis of Data
Since there is no general accepted definition of management, I can say that
management is the study of how man work together to achieve a systematic result.
As a science of it’s own, management will reliably inform managers what to do
in a particular situation to enable them to predict the consequences of their
actions while as art, it is the know how to accomplish a desired concrete
Koontz (1980 pg.20) also said “with the possible exception of formulating
science itself, art is the most creative of all human pursuit”. Therefore when
the importance of effective, and efficient group cooperation in any society is
appreciated, it is not difficult to urge that managing is most important of all
According to Luther Gulick management is a field of knowledge that seeks to
systematically understand why and how men work together systematically to
accomplish objectives and make these cooperative systems more useful to mankind.
By this statement, he is optimistic that management is no it’s way
to becoming a science since it’s studied systematically and its theories are
being tested against its experiences.
