Managers are people who steer an organisation towards meeting its' objectives. Management has been described as: 'the process of planning, organising, leading and controlling the efforts of organisation members and of using all organisational resource to achieve stated organisational goals.' A manager's job is to maintain control over the way an organisation does things, and at the same time to lead, inspire and direct the people under them. In a company the shareholders will elect a board of directors to represent their interests. A Managing Director will be appointed who has overall responsibility for running the company. The managing director with help from other directors will appoint senior managers to run the company.

A judicial system whereby individuals seeking remedies before national tribunals and courts could rely upon EU law is necessary for the enforcement of EU law on employment and industrial relations. The model for judicial enforcement of EU law could have followed one of at least two tracks. Enforcement of EU law could have been left entirely to the national judicial system of each Member State, using the national system of remedies, procedures and sanctions to enforce EU law on employment and industrial relations. Alternatively, the attempt might be made to create an entirely original form of judicial system.
Management consists of five processes, namely, planning, organizing, leading, coordinating and controlling.

Effective planning involves foresight.

A two-week meeting of the Preparatory Committee for the 2009 review conference on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance opened in Geneva on Monday. It is the first "substantive" meeting in a process that began in early 2006 and is likely to continue for at least another year. The purpose of the Preparatory Committee is to prepare for a conference, planned for 2009, that will review progress and assess implementation – at national, regional and international levels – of the Declaration and Plan of Action adopted by the 2001 World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance. The review process will also identify concrete measures and initiatives for combating and eliminating these phenomena.

EMILE DURKHEIM On the Division of Labor in Society. Book1, Chp 1: 'The method of determining this function' In this chapter, Durkheim asks what the division of labor (DOL) in society is. First, he states that since the DOL increases both the reproductive capacity and skill of the workman, it is the necessary condition for the intellectual and material development in societies (12). However, the DOL also has a moral character which is more important. It can create a feeling of solidarity between two or more people (17).
Maximilian Karl Emil "Max" Weber ( German: [ˈmaks ˈveːbɐ] ; 21 April 1864 – 14 June 1920) was a German sociologist , philosopher , and political economist whose ideas influenced social theory , social research , and the discipline of sociology itself. [ 3 ] Weber is often cited, with Émile Durkheim and Karl Marx , as one of the three founding architects of sociology. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] Weber was a key proponent of methodological antipositivism , arguing for the study of social action through interpretive (rather than purely empiricist ) means, based on understanding the purpose and meaning that individuals attach to their own actions.
In philosophy , rationality is the characteristic of any action, belief, or desire, that makes their choice optimal under a set of constraints. [ 1 ] It is a normative concept of reasoning in the sense that rational people should derive conclusions in a consistent way given the information at disposal. It refers to the conformity of one's beliefs with one's reasons to believe, or with one's actions with one's reasons for action. However, the term "rationality" tends to be used differently in different disciplines, including specialized discussions of economics , sociology , psychology , evolutionary biology and political science .
