Re-defining Middle Management


Middle managers have received a bad press. Several surveys point to difficulties in the “middle” of an organisation.

How would you define your middle management – entrenched, enriched, encircled, expanding? With questions about the effectiveness of middle managers, are they on borrowed time? Or, have we made their jobs impossible – discouraging innovation and knowledge creation by organisational and resource pressures? Perhaps it’s time to re-think the role of middle managers. This guide will help you to do that, and help middle managers to move from the middle-ground to the high-ground!

  • Identify the strengths of middle managers.
  • Explore a different emphasis on middle management.
