As opposed to management or leadership, non-contextual situations provide appropriate opportunities for people to employ ruling or lordship and dictatorship. Ruling or lordship presents as appropriate in non-emergent situations and dictatorship in emergent situations. As with managers, rulers employ standard operating procedures, looking to maximize efficiency and effectiveness in accomplishing tasks, objectives, and goals. As with leaders, those who dictate do so without using standard operating procedures, looking to mitigate loss or success. Unlike situations that call for the employment of management or leadership, the use of lordship or dictatorship primarily work to further the ruler or dictators' ideological agendas, rather than necessarily meeting content-based, contextual needs, as otherwise generally acknowledged by organizations or societies. Appropriate applications for the employment of lordship might emerge in situations that present with ambiguous contexts. Appropriate applications for the employment of dictatorship might emerge in situations that present various, variable, or otherwise changing contexts for which no unique set of standard operating procedures could exist.
