Management encompasses a wide range of responsibilities, including setting objectives, making decisions, allocating resources, leading and motivating employees, and monitoring performance.

Effective management requires a combination of technical, interpersonal, and leadership skills, and is crucial for the success of organizations, businesses, and other types of ventures.
