The whole of the preceding chapters have attempted to show the various components of the ideal manager's knowledge and mental equipment. At the beginning it is seen that separate subjects, hardly related to one another, form a background of general knowledge necessary (or at least highly desirable) for the formation of sound judgments. These are joined by the specific tool subjects, technologies and skills which have a direct bearing on the practice of management. These, in turn, are combined in the field of control, dealt with in chapter 7.0, where perhaps two or more tools, guided by background knowledge, are used to perform certain important controlling functions necessary in the practice of management. It will, however, be clear from a reference to paragraphs 1.10, 1.20 and from TABLE 1 that all these things are merely part of the manifestations of Management and Administration and not the essence of the functions.
