Describe the overall purposes of management

It is to plan, direct, organize and ensure the success of a business at various levels through a number of methods including customer satisfaction and employee training.

List and define/discuss the four functions of management.

The major functions that a manager completes can be categorized into four different functions known as planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. In planning the manager will create a detailed action plan aimed at some organizational goal. In organizing you need to determine how you will distribute resources and organize your employees according to the plan. In leading you need to spend time connecting with your employees on an interpersonal level. Finally, in controlling once your plan has been carried out the manager evaluates the results against the goals.

Is a manger's job for you? Why?

I don't think I have enough experience right now to be an manager. But maybe later on in life I can get the ability to become one. They have many of responsibilities they have to follow and do.
