The article discusses the question of management and managing, focusing on the changes which took place in the period from Taylor to Drucker. In this period two turning points dramatically changed the nature of management. Management which started within the organization was at first concerned with the organization’s inner workings. This concern with the organization’s ‘inside’ is gradually projected to the outside, to society as a whole. Simultaneously, changes occur in managing. Managing which was first understood as managing others, i.e. as the activity of the manager managing the worker, changed into managing oneself. This is a shift to the inside, to managing individual’s inner world and thinking processes.
