Management is putting the pieces of the puzzle together.  Combining all aspects into a successful venture.  Management begins with knowing what you are managing, who the decision makers are, knowing who you are, where you are going, and how you will get there.  An understanding of the ecological processes that we live with every day, the effects of our tools and our decisions, and a way to test our decisions to make sure they take us where we intend to go are essential.  We must create a plan that will take us where we intend to go and we must monitor what is happening ecologically, financially, and socially to make sure we are not creating more problems.  When we understand all the above and practice it, we will be successful.
