Remember, as quoted by Israel Fermin, Crosby (1988) defines management as “the art of making things happen.” For its part, Krygier (1988) defines it as a body of knowledge relevant to the effective management of an organization. At present, there is consensus among many authors, noting that the term management can be defined as a process involving coordination of all available resources in an organization (human, physical, technological, financial), so that through the processes of planning, organization, direction and control are achieved its goals. In this way, we can identify three key aspects such as defining the management process: first, the coordination of organizational resources, and second the execution of managerial tasks in administrative and / or also called means of achieving coordination and, thirdly, to establish the purpose of the management process, ie we want to go or what we want to achieve. Before proceeding further we need to know why and when management is needed, what it does and how.
