The paradoxes of management with particular reference to the conduct of Development Assistance

R. Kowalski
2006 International Journal of Management Concepts and Philosophy  
The paradoxes of management are explored at two levels. The overall challenge of 'getting things done by other people' is broken down into the processes of providing direction, control (presented as planning) and motivation, with their associated paradoxes. These are formulated in relation to the management role of deciding as a fractal model of management and the attendant management contributions discussed. Finally, these issues are placed in the specific context of managing Development Assistance (DA).
