MANAGEMENT PROBLEM IN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT AND TECHNOLOGY ENUGU
A visit to any of the state organization convinces one of clear lack of managerial know how in the organization. There are indiscipline, authoritarian leadership style, and the situation gets worse as one get to the lower levels of the organizational hierarchy. All resources are very poorly utilized in the organization.
Policies act as deterrent rather than facilitator of decision-making, there is over concentration of decision making in one person and delegation is non-existence, where it exist, responsibility is delegated and commensurate authority is withheld.
The management cadre, which is a siniquonon for economic development, is lacking. The government in many instances has assumed the function of entrepreneurs and taken over the managerial functions. Instances abound to convince every one that the government has not fared well as a good manager and has even performed worse than private entrepreneurs.

3.1 Analysis of Data
Since there is no general accepted definition of management, I can say that management is the study of how man work together to achieve a systematic result.
As a science of it’s own, management will reliably inform managers what to do in a particular situation to enable them to predict the consequences of their actions while as art, it is the know how to accomplish a desired concrete result.
Koontz (1980 pg.20) also said “with the possible exception of formulating science itself, art is the most creative of all human pursuit”. Therefore when the importance of effective, and efficient group cooperation in any society is appreciated, it is not difficult to urge that managing is most important of all arts.
According to Luther Gulick management is a field of knowledge that seeks to systematically understand why and how men work together systematically to accomplish objectives and make these cooperative systems more useful to mankind.
By this statement, he is optimistic that management is no it’s way to becoming a science since it’s studied systematically and its theories are being tested against its experiences.
However, management problem has been order of the day in Nigeria, especially in our higher institutions, both in Polytechnics and our Universities. The acute level of mismanagement has been to the extent that our academic standard has been sent to the mould.
