Today's managers work in complex organizational structures. They are concerned not only with employees and customers, but with the social, economic, political, and technological aspects of their environment. As we turn toward a global economy, successful managers will be required to have a working knowledge of the international business environment.
Each managerial position in every firm or organization is unique, fulfilling the specific requirements of the organization. A manager is usually an active member of the management team and is a skilled team player.
Functions of a Manager
- Planning: Involves the establishment of goals, defining objectives, and developing short and long term strategic planning.
- Organization and Administration: Establishes the structure which enables individuals to work together efficiently and productively. The manager is a motivator, helps create a good work environment, and is involved in training employees as well as assigning responsibilities and delegating authority. They manage conflicts and changes.
