Course Description: Management is the process of designing and maintaining a work environment in which employees, working in groups, accomplish the goals of the organization with the least amount of time, resources and personal dissatisfaction.

Productivity is based on creating an organization that is both effective and efficient. Being effective means the organization accomplishes its objectives while being efficient means that the organization achieves the results with the least amount of consumed resources.
