There's a great paragraph from the Preface to Gary Hamel's book the Future of Management:
"Management is out of date. Like the combustion engine, it's a technology that has largely stopped evolving, and that's not good. Why? Because management - the capacity to marshal resources, lay out plans, program work and spur effort - is central to the accomplishment of human purpose. When it's less effective than it could be, or needs to be, we all pay the price."
Are you up to the challenge?
