“The English verb “to manage” was originally derived from the Italian maneggiare, meaning to handle and train horses. In this earlier meaning, the emphasis is on learning with, abiding with, adapting to, respecting, and working with another complex entity this original meaning merged with the French term menage, or household, making it easier to adapt the meaning of the combined term manage to the metaphor of the obedient machine, to the corridors of power, and to the actions of controlling and directing. “ Extracted from “Like Bramble Bushes in a thicket” Kurtz & Snowden 2006.
