Questions 1. Among the primary factors that contributed to the emergence and growth of management consultancy are: 1. Growth in size and complexity of business. 2. Difficulty in conducting and managing a business. 3. Greater competition among businesses so that new management techniques will have to be applied. 4. Recognition of the importance of accurate and timely information in decision-making. 5. Inability to have a complete line-up of professional management. 2. Small companies need management consultants to provide them with professional assistance because they are usually not in a position to hire a complete line-up of well-rounded management. Owners and their executives are usually burdened with the responsibility of managing the day-to-day operations of the company so that not enough time is devoted to many staff services that are essential to the continuous growth and success of the business. 3. The objectives of management of a business organization are: Primary: To maximize the return on the investors’ capital and at the same time providing for the safety of such resources entrusted to them. Secondary: To be able to discharge its social and legal responsibilities towards its employees, customers, the community and the government. 4. Refer to page 9, par(s) 3 and 4 1-1
