From the Paper:

"Management is not a science. Rather, management is a dynamic process that involves the interaction between the manager in question and the environment he or she is located in. This "environment" includes the manager's employees. A manager must be continually aware of shifts and changes, not simply in his or her own national branch of the business he or she works for, but the state of that business as the organization exists in different forms and in different areas around the globe. As cited in Patrick Boylan's article upon the history of management as a theoretical discipline, Rosemary Stewart has noted that there have been, historically, four academic approaches to studying management."
