CSR
Community Service and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

• The term "corporate social responsibility" became popular in the 1960s and has
remained a term used indiscriminately by many to cover legal and moral responsibility
more narrowly construed.[11]
• Business Dictionary defines CSR as "A company’s sense of responsibility towards the
community and environment (both ecological and social) in which it operates.
Companies express this citizenship (1) through their waste and pollution reduction
processes, (2) by contributing educational and social programs and (3) by earning
adequate returns on the employed resources."[12]
• A broader definition expands from a focus on stakeholders to
include philanthropy and volunteering.[13]

MANAGEMENT
The organization and coordination of the activities of a business in order to
achieve defined objectives. Management is often included as a factor of
production along with machines, materials, and money. According to the
management guru Peter Drucker (1909-2005), the basic task of
management includes both marketing and innovation.
Practice of modern management originates from the 16th century study of
low-efficiency and failures of certain enterprises, conducted by the English
statesman Sir Thomas More (1478-1535). Management consists of the
interlocking functions of creating corporate policy and organizing,
planning, controlling, and directing an organization's resources in order to
achieve the objectives of that policy.

MANAGEMENT
The directors and managers who have the power and responsibility to
make decisions and oversee an enterprise. The size of management can
range from one person in a small organization to hundreds or thousands of
managers in multinational companies.

In large organizations, the board of directors defines the policy which is


then carried out by the chief executive officer, or CEO. Some people agree
that in order to evaluate a company's current and future worth, the most
important factors are the quality and experience of the managers.
