  2. 2. By management in all business and human organization we understood from the activity of collecting people to attain or fulfill a goal. Management consists of planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization for achieving a goal and a person handle the entire organization is known to be as a Manager. Below is provided an interesting list of most famous managers of present age.
  3. 3. Jeff Bezos • Jeff Bezos is one of the founding fathers of e-commerce, and part of a select group of entrepreneurs in that field who managed to survive the dot-com bubble without losing control of their companies. Today, his business, Amazon.com, is an Internet goliath that sells everything from books to laptops to gift baskets. Most recently, the company has acquired Zappos, the online shoe retailer, and unveiled the Kindle, the first e- reader to become a breakout hit. This risky move into consumer electronics shows that Jeff Bezos, having pioneered online retail, is not yet ready to give up the pursuit of innovation.
  4. 4. Indra Nooyi • Indra Nooyi, another of Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women, has not only led her company to record financial results but is making strides to move PepsiCo in a healthier direction, leading the courageous charge to shed traditional fast food properties and to replace them with initiatives to supply healthier foods. She is deeply caring and committed as a senior executive. She is a fun- loving executive as well—she played lead guitar for an all-woman rock band in college, loved to play cricket, and is known to sing karaoke and perform at corporate gatherings to this day. Yes, I have been known to relate to her fun- loving spirit as a senior executive as well.
  5. 5. Howard Schultz • Howard Schultz grew up in a Brooklyn housing project, and after snagging a football scholarship from Northern Michigan, he became the first in his family to graduate from college. He landed a marketing gig at a small coffee bean store called Starbucks, traveled to Italy and wanted to open an espresso bar back home. His Starbucks bosses dismissed his idea, so he started a rival store in 1985, making his java with Starbucks beans. Two years later, Schultz bought Starbucks from his bosses two years later for $3.8 million. This is Schultz's second time running Starbucks--he left in 2000 for eight years--and he has dramatically reversed the company's slide. Starbucks' market cap has nearly quadrupled since his return. Through Schultz's VC firm, Maveron, he holds stakes in Groupon, eBay and Pinkberry frozen yogurt. Schultz's plan to pay for all his employees to get a degree has grabbed headlines; his name has been pushed forward as a dark-horse presidential candidate in 2016, though he has made no official noises about a campaign. Pal David Geffen, the record label billionaire, is reportedly a strong supporter of the idea.
  6. 6. Brad Smith • Brad Smith was named Intuit's president and chief executive officer in January 2008, culminating a five-year rise through the company where he successfully led several of its major businesses. Intuit is one of the world’s largest and most successful financial software companies. Intuit's mission is to improve its customers' financial lives so profoundly, they couldn't imagine going back to the old way. Its products and services simplify the business of life for more than 45 million consumers, small businesses and accounting professionals around the world. Brad has fostered a culture where nearly 8,000 employees are allowed to take risks and to grow by learning from success and failure.
  7. 7. Larry Page • Larry Page is another example of a businessperson who can persevere any challenge. Larry Page runs what is the most influential company of the digital era. Larry and his company have faced much criticism and received ample praise over the years for his company’s actions. But in the midst of the storm, he has never let what others think sway him from pursuing the course for his company that he considers the best. • In November 2014, Page's family foundation gave $15 million to aid the fight against Ebola.
  8. 8. Phil Knight • He stared his career from selling Japanese sneakers from the trunk of his car. And took nearly 40 years to make it $12.3 billion sports conglomerate. During 1980s and 1990s he completely changed the rules of the games for sports marketing. Next he changed high performance sports gear into a fashion statement. • Fifty years after first selling running shoes out of the trunk of his car, Phil Knight is now peddling sportswear in nearly every country on the planet, racking up record revenues and profits. Nike's U.S. market, often questioned as a growth opportunity, increased revenues by double digits for the fourth straight year. The son of a newspaper publisher, Knight insists it hasn't always been easy for him. "For me, an extrovert was a person who stared at other people's shoes," he said in a 2014 commencement address. Being an introvert didn't deter him. After graduating from Stanford Business School in 1962, the onetime track star decided to travel the world and talked his way into meetings with Japanese shoe suppliers. Back home, he and his old track coach each put up $500 to start Blue Ribbon Sports. Knight changed the name to Nike in 1978, after the Greek goddess of victory.
  9. 9. • Tim Cook is the man behind the most valuable company in the world ($118 billion brand value) and varsity player in design, technology, publishing, Hollywood and music. In May the company picked up Beats, the headphone and streaming music service, for $3 billion. The opening weekend for the iPhone 6 in September set a new Apple record, selling 10 million smartphones in just three days. But perhaps the biggest move for Cook this year was a personal one: In October he came out publicly: "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.“ • Steve Jobs is a hard act to follow, but thus far, Tim Cook is doing a tremendous job.
