Similarly, a manager is answerable to many people so complications in the functioning are mandatory hence the managers are trained to tackle various problems.

→ Code of Conduct – Members of a profession have to abide by a code of conduct which contains certain rules and regulations, norms of honesty, integrity and special ethics. A code of conduct is enforced by a representative association to ensure self discipline among its members. Any member violating the code of conduct can be punished and his membership can be withdrawn. The AIMA has prescribed a code of conduct for managers but it has no right to take legal action against any manager who violates it.

Hence it can be seen that management and profession make a very great and successful combo.
