As a Manager, you plan, organize, direct, control and evaluate the activities of the unit that reports to you efficiently and profitably. Depending on the size of your organization, there may be a hierarchy of management. What you’re responsible for, who reports to you and who you report to depends on which level you reside and the industry or organization employs you. Management exists in all industries and organizations across all public and private sectors.

You decide what work needs to be done to realize those objectives and often assign jobs as part of your organizational responsibilities.

To ensure successful execution of company objectives, you manage middle managers and senior staff members. You’re someone who gets the best out of his team.
