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
