Aided but not replaced by computers Now-a-days, all managers use computers. Computers help the managers totake accurate decisions.

The success or failure of management can be judged only by its results. If there is good discipline, good productivity, goodprofits, etc., then the management is successful and vice-versa. 13. Uses a professional approach in work Managers use a professional approach for getting the work done from their subordinates. They delegate (i.e. give) authority to their subordinates.
