Managers typically plan, lead, and organize a team of employees.  Managers work to increase the effectiveness of their employees, and the efficiency of their team as a whole.

Great managers not only lead, but they plan, organize, and staff their team to meet their established goals. They mentor, give direction, and often need to apply corrective action if a team member isn’t meeting individual goals and responsiblities.  

Management can involve supervising a group of people, or even just individual projects, and there are entry-level managers as well as senior managers with years of experience.  

Management roles include:

  • Project managers
  • Production managers
  • Shift leaders
  • Program managers
  • Human Resource managers
As you can see, there are many types and levels of management positions.
