why management is science?

Science is a systematized body of knowledge that explains certain genral truths or operation of general laws. Features of Science are :

1. Systematised body of knowledge: Science is a Systematised body of knowledge. its principles are based on cause and effect relationship.

2. Priciples are based on Experimentation: Scientific principles are first developed through observation then tested through repeated experimentation.

3. Universal Validity: Scientific Principles have universal validity applicablity which can be applied in different places at different points of time.

While Management has some of theSe features, it doesnot have others-

1. management has a Systematised body of knowledge. It has its own theory principles which is developed over a period of time.

2. The principles of management have evolved over a period of time based on repeated experimentation observation.

3. But the principles of management are not as exact as the principles of science, their application use is not universal. They have to b modified according to the Given situation.

  • SInce management deals with human behavious, the methods of observation cannot be predicted with absolute accuracy. Moreover it is a relatively new field of knowledge most of its prinicples are still being evolved. Therefore managemnt can be called as an Inexact Science.

Exist systamatic body of knowledge and it is derived from repeated experimemts

management can regard as science as it is a sytematised body of knowledge that explains ceetain general truths accuired through observation and experimentation .for example a docter is required to know systematised knowledge of medical,and therefore also a manager too is required to know principle of management.
