Description

Most modern management theories have originated in the Western societies and are not always relevant in the Asian economies, but management skills might be one of the exceptions. Management guru Peter Drucker thought management was the unity of practice and application, science and art. Management includes knowledge and skills. Management knowledge can be learned, while management skills are the internalization and sublimation of management knowledge, which needs time and practice. Skills used by managers relate to enterprise efficiency and have a profound impact on performance. Katz's theory has been validated in the Western context, but whether the structure of management skills at different levels in the Chinese context is consistent with Katz's theory has not been verified by scholars. This article, based on theory and experience, studies the structure of management skills at different levels and the demographic factors influencing them.
