"Management" is not an occupation of a small group of people formally denoted as managers: social life is subject to management all the time, at all places. This awareness is important to management scholars who, in order to understand management, need to understand culture, space and language. It is equally important to culture scholars who must abandon the illusion that culture takes place in a niche, protected from the issues of accounting, planning and controlling.
