Although there are many different opinions concerning a subject as broad as the management process, it is generally agreed upon that the management process consists of: a) goal setting b) planning to achieve goals and c) organization and execution of aforementioned goals. Typically, management will first define the specific objectives that will aid their business in the pursuit of generating a net profit. This includes analyzing all possible courses of action to decide which course of action is most likely to produce the most profit without a sacrifice to product integrity. After this decision is made, it is then up to management to assign and define the functions and relationships that will aid the business in the pursuit of meeting its goals. Once these roles are defined, it is then up to management to staff accordingly. This includes the recruitment and training of individuals who are considered well-suited for the roles defined by management as necessary for the business's continued growth. Therefore, the management process is an ongoing procedure that requires continuous supervision and immediate action geared toward the betterment of the company.

An entire book or volumes of books can be composed on this subject.  I would think that the space given to me here would not be able to fully answer the question.  Management process is the manner in which an individual in the position of power determines the best way to work with their organization in order to maximize results and secure productivity in work.  I think from this point, one gets into a variety of different management styles and techniques.  Some are very autocratic, where power comes from top down in a very stratified format.  Others are more participatory and steeped in the notion of validating voice and experience in the process of management.  The choice of which technique or style to adopt is dependent on the individual in the position of power, the situation in which they enter, and the people they are going to manage.  Hybrids of different styles can be employed, but the manager has to reflect in a very thorough manner on the process and paradigm in which they are going to function as the leader of individuals.
