Organizations are primarily complex of goals seeking of unit which in order to survive must accompany secondary task e.g. they must maintain their internal system to co-ordinate the human side of the enterprise and must adapt and to shape the external environment.
EITON (1984) stated that human affiliation of man could be a motivating force and viewed of the industrial organization as a social and economic as well as technical system.
According to Elton, managers should be judged by their ability to maintain co-operation, this implies that once a primary group is seen as motivating force, it may be said that a managerial elite will become absolute as the works, the group itself become the decision making. Whether or not, this is possible.
