Management Levels and Management Skills

Levels of Managers in an Organization:-

First-Line Managers:
They are those managers having the least authority and are at the lowest level in the hierarchy of an organization.

Middle Mangers:
Those managers who beneath the top-levels of the hierarchy and directly supervise other managers below them.

Top Managers:-
They are those managers at the very top levels of the hierarchy who have the most authority and who are ultimately responsible for the entire organizational matters.

Management Skills:
Managers need three types of key skills to perform the duties and activities:

1. Technical skills:-
Technical skills include knowledge of and proficiency in a certain specialized field, such as computers,engineering, accounting, or manufacturing. These skills are more important at lower levels of management since these managers are dealing directly with employees doing the organization’s work.

2. Human skills:-
Human skills are associated with a manager’s ability to work well with others both as a member of a group and as a leader who gets things done through others. Because managers deal directly with people, They know how to communicate, motivate, lead, and inspire enthusiasm and trust. These skills are equally important at all levels of management.

3. Conceptual skills:-
Conceptual skills are the skills managers must have to think and to conceptualize about abstract and complex situations. Using these skills, managers must be able to see the organization as a whole, understand the relationships among various submits, and visualize how the organization fits into its broader environment.

Four trends are likely to impact managerial work in the future:-

  • Changes & innovation
  • Managing diversity
  • Global perspective
  • Continuous improvement
