Managing People: One of the fundamental concepts in leadership and management is the management of people. This includes getting the most from employees within the organisation in a supporting manner, leading, motivating and encouraging staff to willingly contribute to the growth and improved quality of the organisation.

Managing Information: Decision making is fundamental to the success of a manager. Faced with substantial amounts and a variety of information on a daily basis, it is important that managers are able to make effective decisions quickly. This can only be done if the manager has an effective way of managing and being able to assess accurately the information that they receive.
