Problem solving can take up a lot of managerial time. So it makes sense for one to resolve problems before they develop, let alone grow to impact the bottom line. As a manager, one practices preventive management for just this reason. One understands how problems often can be identified in their early stages, even avoided. One knows how important it is to analyze an operation or practice to determine where weaknesses can occur and then shore up these weaknesses or, better yet, develop procedures without such flaws.
