The paper discusses the nature of business management as an applied science and states that business management is limited to one component of the economic system, namely the individual organization. The profitable performance of a business is dependent on attaining pre-designed objectives and to make its services as productive and efficient as possible. The paper continues and discusses the roles of leadership and management and concludes that the interaction between the concept of management and that of leadership should not obscure or neglect their intrinsic differences.

From the Paper:

"This view would seem to imply that management and leadership are two different things. While the point that Dubin makes is valid, yet it must also be acknowledged that in today's dynamic and complex environment, management in the more traditional sense of delegation, ordering and organization may not be sufficient to deal with the many elements of modern business and organizational demands. In other words, one perspective in this debate would see the conflation and reduction of the two terms as theoretically incorrect, and that in a more practical sense these two terms coexist and that leadership has become in many instances a necessary and intrinsic component of managing."
