1.1 BACKGOUND OF THE
This study is set to investigate the role of Small Business
Organizations with a case of study on Bilo Tex Trading and Construction Company
Nig LTD based in Enugu State. By investigation, this company has been
established six years ago and has four sections; the personal section,
construction, production and marketing sections. It engages in the production
of keys, tanks, gates and aluminum.
Based on the study, a manager is the person who holds a management
position and who performs the process of management, or one who occupies
management position and performs organizational functions of management.
In the same view,
(NWEKE 1952) in his book supports that a manager is that integrates all functions
of management, such as planning, organizing, motivating and controlling to
achieve an organizational goal or objective which the organization was
His position is of leadership, his work is more leading,
therefore, this two things are related and their relationship can be expressed
as the responsibilities of a manager in the following classification-management
as a position and management as a job or activity.
More so, the management
by the classification of management occupies administration position (top
level) managing director or general manager, the operative position (the
workers) these groups are all involved in the accomplishment of the
organizations example complementing a batch order, meeting a sales quota,
assembling financial data etc, are the duties of production, supervisors, sales
supervisors. finance officer and a certain technical staff, when an operative
manager performs the work of management, performs the work of administrative
and management of the activities are known as and operative management
In other words, the middle management position, the perform
both the administrative and operative manager, the proportion of each
performance depends upon the degree of decentralization of the firm, talking of
business its size and particular philosophy.
Management as a job or activity undertakes decision making, the
process of decision making is one deciding the course of action and that of
solving business problems.
There are two types of personnel decision which a businessman
makes as he seeks to maximize his own income valve or pleasure.
And management decision affects not only the welfare of the
manager but other benefits accruing to other persons connected with the
organization. secondary, job co-ordination has to do with a manager’s
responsibility for planning and physical factors in an organization.
The purpose of co-dination is to link the company together as a
unified whole. Then planning, organizing and control reveal or explain the
exact nature of the work of a manager. The activities of planning, organizing
and controlling are called the organic function management.
The interrelation between the four function e.g planning,
organizing, motivative and controlling the managers use these activities solely
for the purpose , of reaching organizational goals or objectives. For
explanation, organizing is based on well though-out motivating systems must be
tailored to reflect both these plans and the organization design used to
implement the plan.
So, the role of a manager in a small business organization is a
pattern of actions expected to the manager in activities involving others. And
it reflects a person’s position as a social system geared towards goal
achievement of the organization. Goal of the organization must be sold at a
lower price. Profit cannot be the goal, instead profit must be by product.
So, the manager’s role
is the cornerstone of the organization because without his absolute
co-odination of the enterprises, there will be no work done.
Mostly importantly, the manager imposes some trends or
problem in his such as managerial capabilities in handing records kept by the
management then wrong uses of funds etc. the possible solutions such as
training of employees, and managers, are for the improvement of the small
