MANAGE-1 (REVISION): meaning and examples

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend!

This week we are going to revise some Daily Vitamins that were originally sent in February of 2005; we will look at expressions that use the verb to manage. On Thursday we will recommend an interesting website for managers.

Today's expression is: to manage somebody or something.

It means: to organize or control the work of a company, an organization or a group of people.

Example 1:
Mr. Jackson has managed the accounting department for many years without any extra assistance.

Example 2:
The people in that company are very difficult to manage; They've worked there for a very long time, so they find it difficult to accept change.

Two nouns related to the verb Manage are:

-Manager = a person who manages controls and organizes the work of an organization or business.

-Management = the control and operation of a business or organization; or the group of people who control and operate a business or organization.

Example 3:
If you're not happy with the service, you should ask to speak to the manager.

Example 4:
If I take a course in business management I'll have a better chance of being promoted.

Example 5:
The workers went on strike (huelga) when talks between the union and management deteriorated.
