To Manage per the Webster's New Encyclopedic Dictionary is to "oversee and make decisions", "direct and to make and keep compliant", "To treat with care, use to best advantage." The definition also includes "to succeed in one's purpose."

Each of the above has a core and collective connection, dealing with people, systems & processes. Management is typically carried out by Managers. Sounds routine, mundane almost matter of fact.

It is all of the above and none of the above. Confused, don't be. Management  if thought to be routine will result in poor results. Managing systems and processes is accomplished through and with people. Never forget the "people" part of the equation.

There will always be some level of success when managers simply manage without consideration of the people/employees that perform the function or service. Employees will historically trust in those that instruct and manage until a point in time where lack of interim/ongoing instruction confronts/opposes employee expectation. Performance will, without a buyin of the worker/employee, not be consistent and over the long term will actually decrease.

Measurement of performance is one of key elements to obtain an understanding of how the employee relates to the systems and processes utilized.
