Babarinde Solomon Adejare


Management is defined by Drucker as a process by which managers do their work by getting others to do theirs. It is also the process of planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. Planning entrails decision making, forecasting and simulating the objective function so as to take tomorrow’s decisions today. Organising entails deciding who should do what and the authority, line and staff relations, and departmentation to achieve the organizational goals and objectives. Staffing is the process of recruitment, selection, placement, orientation, training and development, wage administration, compensation, and motivation of the staff. Leading entails influencing the staff to achieve the organizational goals and objectives. Controlling entails comparing actual performance and planned performance to see if there are negative deviation so as to correct action. Management Research entails taking a cursory look and searching again at the management phenomena of interest. One of the benefits of Management Research is that it could be a route to Economic Growth which with proper distribution of its proceeds and with spontaneous changes could lead to Economic Development. When Development is going, Sustainable Development sets in. The specific objectives of the study are to determine if management Research could be used as a route to sustainable Development in Nigeria, to ascertain if planning research could be used as a route to Economic Development and beyond it in Nigeria and to find out if controlling Research could be used as a route to economic growth and beyond it in Nigeria.
