Management is often found in business. Therefore, a business philosophy is helpful in creating a management philosophy because philosophy can serve as a common link between business and management. Business applies itself very directly to philosophy in the sense of ethics or “business ethics”. Management can be ethical as well. Ethics are the first step in my philosophical approach to management. Ethics serve as an applied philosophy that can be a part of business, management, or a larger notion of philosophy. Philosophy is such a huge field that it is a challenge to narrow it down to the topic of management, but ethics is a starting point for this challenge.
