Grade 8 EMS part 2 management

There are three levels of management typically found in an organization which are low-level management, middle-level management, and top-level management.

Middle-level managers are responsible for executing organizational plans which comply with the company’s policies. These managers act at an intermediary between top-level management and low-level management.
Low-level managers focus on controlling and directing. They serve as role models for the employees they supervise.

Key Terms
Hierarchy: Any group of objects ranked so that every one but the topmost is subordinate to a specified one above it.
manager: A person whose job is to manage something, such as a business, a restaurant, or a sports team.
board of directors: A group of people, elected by stockholders, to establish corporate policies, and make management decisions.
top management: company employees responsible for controlling and overseeing the entire organization
middle management: company employees that are accountable for controlling and overseeing a department.

The lower-level managers are the first line of managers as they feature at the base of operations, so they are essential personnel that communicates the fundamental problems of the firm to the higher levels. This management level is made up of the foreman, the line boss, the shift boss, the section chief, the head nurse, superintendents, and sergeants.

They are the intermediary, they solve issues amidst the workers and are responsible for the maintenance of appropriate relationships within the organization. They are also responsible for training, supervising, and directing the operative employees. -
