[Extract] Urwick, in identifying in a logical scheme various "Principles of Administration", points to the emergence in the middle of this century of a technical skill from the art and science of administering. He says that: "This development of a technique of administration, a body of professional knowledge without which those who attempt to manage other people appear increasingly amateurish, is likely to have a profound effort on our institutions." (1) More recently Drucker has played down the emphasis on a universal technique and speculated on management's new role. He points out that "Management is fast becoming the central resource of the developed countries and the basic need of the developing ones. From being the specific concern of one, the economic institutions of society, management and managers are becoming the generic, the distinctive, the constitutive organs of developed society. What management is and what managers do will, therefore - properly - become increasingly a matter of public concern rather than a matter for the 'experts'." (2)
