The three basic tasks of all managers according to the text are planning, staffing and evaluating. A manager's main task is to achieve effective utilization of resources in an organization. This is achieved by a combination of efforts from all members of staff but it is the manager who controls and organises the objectives. Planning and organisation are extremely important in running a business and it is the manager who implements organizational objectives. Organisational Behaviour is a psychological field that has been greatly studied in the work place as psychologists investigate the impact that individuals, groups, and structure have on behaviour within an organization, then applies that knowledge to make organizations work more effectively. Specifically, Organisational Behaviour focuses on how to improve productivity, reduce absenteeism and turnover, and increase employee citizenship and job satisfaction.

The second basic task of a manager is staffing. The manager must employ suitable employees and then and remain in close contact with them whilst being motivational and encouraging them to perform their duties to the best of their abilities. Managers must strike up a perfect balance between themselves and their employees that must be both professional yet likeable and give them constructive feedback rather than negative feedback.

Finally, a manager must also be able to effectively evaluate the business. This can sometimes be a difficult task when they are directly involved in the day to day actions  but the manager must be able to stand back and evaluate every aspect, from the product or service provided to the wants and needs of the customers to the efficiency of the staff. They must evaluate how the business can be improved and what methods can be implemented to make it as successful as possible.

There are different levels of management within a business and they will all have different tasks and roles. Different managers have different levels of power and authority and may control different aspects of the business.
