Profession can be understood as a distinct body of data that is learned intellectually and organizationally. In profession, the entry is constrained by examinations and education.

Management as Art & Science
In order to choose whether management is an art or science, the following discussion can be found supportive.
Management as a Science
Science is a systematically structured body of knowledge which is based on proper findings and exact principles and can be verified. The broad view is made on the basis of empirical studies and so they may be applicable in future also. A subject should have the following characteristics in order to be recognized as science:
- An organized body of facts comprising concepts, principles and theories.
- Reasons and Results relationships should be well-known.
- Enquiry methods should be scientific.
- Principles need to be universally accepted and also variable.
Management is related with individuals just like social science but like biology and chemistry, it is not an exact science. Though not entirely but management is like social science, for the reason that it is based on a organized body of knowledge; it is dependent on the reasons and results relations and not on personal likes and dislikes of managers. Just like science, principles of management are obtained from observations and experiments.
Management in the form of an Art
Art is based on the use of knowledge and skills. Through the application of skill, desired results are obtained. Thus the characteristics of art are:
- It symbolizes practical knowledge.
- In a specific field of human activity, it symbolizes personal skills
- It helps to obtain desired/predetermined results.
- Creative in nature
We can regard management as an art as it requires use of facts and personal skills to obtain required results. While dealing with people, every single manager is required to use certain knowledge and skills to obtain desired results. Just as art, management requires certain abilities, skills and judgment and a continuous practice of management concepts and principles. Hence it can be determined that management is both a science and an art based on the above discussion.

As a regular function, all managers must coordinate with departments, units and individuals about the work given to them. There is likely to be duplication, overlapping, and even chaos in the enterprise if there is no agreement and assimilation of activities. According to Mary Parker Follet, right from the planning stage, coordination function begins to perform, where coordination is sought between plans of each department and master plan of the organization. This is also coordination between available resources and objectives.
Coordination is sought between the human resources and the activities which has to be accomplished, at the organizing stage. Coordination is needed between human resources, need and selection of staffs and also between abilities and skills of workers with the jobs allotted to them, at the staffing stage. Harmonious and smooth performance of duties is ensured by direction. Coordination between standard performance and actual performance is ensured by controlling. Therefore, instead of a separate function, coordination is considered as the heart of management.

Functional differentiation- The roles of a business is commonly divided into departments, divisions, sections, etc. By functioning separately from other units, each unit tries to perform its mission. In such circumstances, coordination is important to work successfully in the organizations.
Specialization- A range of specialists are employed by organizations. It may lead to conflict if they are allowed to work without coordination. So there has to be some process by which coordination is maintained between various specialists and also among the specialists and the others in an organization.
- Distinguish between Coordination and Cooperation:
Has a wider scope as it includes cooperation
An aware and deliberate effort
Coordination is dependent on cooperation as it is incomplete without it

A voluntary effort
Cooperation also depends on coordination because it is meaningless
