Within the wide spectrum of frequencies, the universe could be classified into three layers, namely: the layer of materials, the layer of devices, and the layer of systems. At the level of systems, we face open-loop control/management systems, close-loop control/management systems, analogue systems, digital systems, etc. Since the literal meanings of control and management are very similar, the theories behind control and management should be the same. However, the reality is that control and management are two different topics in science and engineering. Most importantly, the theory of control is much more advanced than the theory of management. As a result, there is a need to bridge the gap between control and management. In particular, it is important to create the awareness of control theory among professionals in the field of management. In this talk, I will outline the key concepts of control theory, and explain how these useful concepts in control theory could shape the mindsets of people in management positions. Certainly, better ways of managing various social systems on Earth will greatly increase the world’s level of civilization into a new height.
