Levels of Management
Management is basically a pyramid like structure with following three major levels (normally):
- Top Level - Policy and final decision making authorities. For example, Chairman, Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer, Board of Directors etc.
- Middle level Management - In most organizations the middle level may have more than one level. For example, departmental/regional/zonal heads.
- Front-line Management - Entry level in the management.
Please see the diagrammatic representation below:
The above diagram also indicates that the number of managers will be lesser as the levels go up in the pyramid.
