2 Management Structures
Types of Management Structures Management is the process of reaching goals through the use of human resources, technology, and material resources. To facilitate effective management, businesses are organized in two ways: Vertically (Top, Middle, Supervisory-Level) Horizontally

3 Management Structures
Vertical Organization Top management are those who make the planning decisions that affect the whole company. Chief Executive Officer President Chief Operating Officer Vice President

4 Management Structures
Vertical Organization Middle management implements the decisions of top management. Communicate with and support supervisory-level managers Supervisory-level management supervises the activities of employees who carry out the tasks determined by the plans of middle and top management. Assign duties and evaluate the work of production or service employees

5 Management Structures
Horizontal Organization Horizontal organization involves self-managing teams that set their own goals and make their own decisions. Management structure is organized by process instead of function and is customer-oriented

6 Management Structures
Horizontal Organization Self-Managing Teams Instead of reporting up a chain of command, employees are organized into teams that manage themselves. Each team has an "owner“ (coach) who has ultimate responsibility for ensuring the team meets its goals.

7 Management Structures
Horizontal Organization Organization by Process Teams of people with different specializations are organized around processes, such as developing new products or providing customer support. Team members share opinions, decisions, and responsibility for the team's success or failure.

8 Management Structures
Horizontal Organization Customer Orientation Teams get their direction from the customer, rather than from management. Customer satisfaction should produce large profits, high productivity, and satisfied investors.
