The aim of conflict management is to enhance learning and group outcomes, including effectiveness or performance in an organisational setting. Properly managed conflict can improve group outcomes.
Conflict resolution involves the reduction, elimination, or termination of all forms and types of conflict. Five styles for conflict management, as identified by Thomas and Kilmann, are: competing, compromising, collaborating, avoiding and accommodating. Businesses can benefit from appropriate types and levels of conflict. That is the aim of conflict management and not the aim of conflict resolution. Conflict management does not imply conflict resolution. (Wikipedia)
