One of the main objectives of an organization is to beat its counter part in our possible way. In order for an organization to insure that they must be good at leading, planning, organizing and controlling their resources and materials to accomplish performance objectives. In other words management. There are four main types of management, Classical, Behavioural, Quantitative and now the Modern Approach to Management. The Modern Approach states that there is no one good way of management. A successful organization utilizes all the types of management. A good example of this is the movie Lean on Me, starring Morgan Freeman as Joe Clark, the protagonist of the movie. Joe is a very talented teacher, who takes a lot of pride in his work, but due to certain events (budget cuts), he has to make some very key decisions upon his future at East Side High, New Jersey. After the resignation of Joe Clark, things go back to worse at East Side High, so after 20 years Joe is once again called upon to take the duty of the principal of this once great school. His goal was to accomplish a 75% average on the state 's basic skills test. This goal might be easy at any school, but then again East Side High was not just another school. The previous year the score was 33%. The school was filled with drug dealer, crime, graffiti and other things. Therefore it required a miracle to increase the school 's literacy average by approximately 40%. Joe Clark uses many different management theories, some controversial in order to achieve his goal. The movie was set in mid 1980s, so at that time Modern Approach to Management didn 't come in to being, but Joe did seem to work like the Modern Approach to Management. He used many different theories to accomplish his difficult task. Classical Management assumes that people are rational. They make logical decisions in order to maximize their gain. Classical Management includes the Administrative Principles of Henri Fayol. Joe utilized Henri 's rules
