What is the meaning of Participatory Management?
Participatory management encourages involvement of stakeholders at all
levels in analysis of problems, development of strategies and implementation.
Kurt Lewin had an important core principle of particatory management:
we are likely to modify our own behaviour when we
participate in problem analysis and solution and likely to carry
out decisions we have helped make (Weisbord, 1987: 89).
