Skills of Manager

There is general agreement that at least three areas of skill are necessary for the process of management:
technical, human, and conceptual.
  • Technical skill. Ability to use knowledge, methods, techniques, and equipment necessary for the performance of specific task; acquired from experience, education, and training.

These organizations have classified their responsibilities toward customers, society, the environment, owners, employees-all of the key stakeholders that are affected by their performance.
