Management is concerned with the productive use of resources, of getting the most value (outputs), from the inputs under its influence and control.
With management having such a pivotal role in the maximising of benefits, it behoves us to ensure our best people are appointed to management positions.
You wouldn’t let an incompetent person be the coxswain of a canoe full of people, so why would you let a similarly qualified person manage?
What are you doing to ensure that the right people are in charge of the organisational canoe?
