Categorized under Business,Management | Difference Between Management and Administration Management vs Administration Management and administration may seem the same, but there are differences between the two. Administration has to do with the setting up of objectives and crucial policies of every organization. What is understood by management, however, is the act or function of putting into practice the policies and plans decided upon by the administration. Administration is a determinative function, while management is an executive function. It also follows that administration makes the important decisions of an enterprise in its entirety, whereas management makes the decisions within the confines of the framework, which is set up by the administration. Administration is the top level, whereas management is a middle level activity. If one were to decide the status, or position of administration, one would find that it consists of owners who invest the capital, and receive profits from an organization. Management consists of a group of managerial persons, who leverage their specialist skills to fulfill the objectives of an organization. Administrators are usually found in government, military, religious and educational organizations. Management is used by business enterprises. The decisions of an administration are shaped by public opinion, government policies, and social and religious factors, whereas management decisions are shaped by the values, opinions and beliefs of the mangers. In administration, the planning and organizing of functions are the key factors, whereas, so far as management is concerned, it involves motivating and controlling functions. When it comes to the type of abilities required by an administrator, one needs administrative qualities, rather than technical qualities. In management, technical abilities and human relation management abilities are crucial. Administration usually handles the business aspects, such as finance . It may be defined as a system of efficiently organizing people and resources, so as to make them successfully pursue and achieve common goals and objectives. Administration is perhaps both an art and a

science. This is because administrators are ultimately judged by their performance. Administration must incorporate both leadership and vision. Management is really a subset of administration, which has to do with the technical and mundane facets of an organizations operation. It is different from executive or strategic work. Management deals with the employees. Administration is above management, and exercises control over the finance and licensing of an organization. Therefore, we can see that these two terms are distinct from one another, each with their own set of functions. Both these functions are crucial, in their own ways, to the growth of an organization. Summary: 1. Management is the act or function of putting into practice the policies and plans decided upon by the administration. 2. Administration is a determinative function, while management is an executive function. 3. Administration makes the important decisions of an enterprise in its entirety, whereas management makes the decisions within the confines of the framework, which is set up by the administration. 4. Administrators are mainly found in government, military, religious and educational organizations. Management, on the other hand, is used by business enterprises.

Thanks Reply 6. appau amponsah October 26, 2011 1:08 am It seems to me that your article on the difference between management and administration by Manisha which was updated on 12 Oct 2011 is wrong. I believe all that was said for mgt shd rather go for administration and vice versa. Eg mgt. Formulate policies while adm implements policie. 2 Mgt = top level Adm= middle etc thans Reply 7. Adana November 8, 2011 10:13 am Argument lead me 2 this site, according 2 what i learned, management is @ d top level of an organization bcos it comprises top officer from each department or branches of organization who formulates policy while administrator are the one who implement the policy Reply 8.

Reply 10. Pauline January 27, 2012 4:28 am A clear explaination has been made and the facts are well summarised. Reply kyere williams November 19, 2012 1:29 am Administration and management is not easily differenciated. Some books contradict their functions but the clear difference is that Administration are top level who seeks to formulations of polices and management are middle level which seeks to the implementation of policies.

Mila February 7, 2012 6:12 pm Nowadays administration tends to be understood as the narrower task of developing and maintaing procedures. That is to say it is seen as an aspect of organizing.

Joel Thomas April 2, 2012 9:02 am Maybe this is a difference in usage between British and American English, because in my second job as a 17-year-old I was essentially a filing clerk and my job title was Administrator and I got a Modern Apprenticeship in Business Administration.

what an enlightening article. keep it up. Reply 14. r. nice April 11, 2012 3:17 pm the article was quite good and informative. keep it up. Reply 15. Martinent May 27, 2012 5:20 am Mgt. as the name implies dictates & manage the entire organisation including the administrators. Therefore, the assertion that places Adm. at the top & mgt. at the middle level is a flop. Reply 16. Gideon Aryee June 21, 2012 3:27 pm No,the assertion that administration manage the organisation in entirety is wrong.For its management that formulate policies and administration is to implement them. In other words,management is in the strategic level whilst administration is at the tactical level as far as business organisations are concerned.
