Abstract : Five functions of management are: planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling. Managers perform these functions by manipulating the organizations which sociologists study; hence, the sociologist should be a useful aide to the manager. Automation raises problems which illustrate the relationship: problems of changing authority and career lines, and problems of human judgment. (Author)
