Correct spelling, explanation: management is the correct spelling of this word due to its French origin (manège). This noun is the verb manage with the suffix -ment added to it. There is no need to skip e at the end of manage to add the suffix, that is why
managment is incorrect and the correct form is management. The mistake with skipping this e may be caused by pronunciation in which it is silent.
Definition of management:
noun, the act of managing
The management was poor, which is why this business plan didn’t succeed.
I think I need to work on my management skills.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is incorrect because the word management comes from the verb manage and the noun suffix -ment; when we combine these two no spelling is changed, hence manage + ment is management. The vowel e in between isn’t skipped, therefore
managment is a wrong spelling.
