10 Managerial Roles by Mintzberg

Another major concept in this area is by Henry Mintzberg. In 'The Nature of Managerial Work' (1973), he identified 10 managerial roles in 3 groups:
- Informational (Monitor, Disseminator, Spokesperson),
- Interpersonal (Figurehead, Leader, Liaison), and
- Decisional (Entrepreneur, Disturbance Handler, Resource Allocator, Negotiator).

A Recent Book from Mintzberg

In a more recent book 'The Strategy Process: Concepts, Context, Cases (4th Edition)', Mintzberg also identifies managerial roles grouped in 3 slightly different levels:
1. Informational level (administrative)
2. People level (leaders)
3. Action level (doers).
