Right to Manage definition

A ‘right to manage’ is a mandate of managers or leaders to govern a company in the way they see fit without influence from external parties. In most situations managers will be influenced by external stakeholders, such as shareholders or pressure groups.

Separately, right to manage also refers to the right of leaseholders to flats in the UK to force the transfer of the landlord’s management functions to a company controlled by them. The right helps leaseholders take back control from bad landlords. This right is codified in the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
