Present Day Managers
In recent times organisations have restructured and downsized, the traditional pyramid of organisations has become flatter. The ranks of the middle managers have been reduced and many of the duties formerly carried out by the middle managers now fall to frontline managers.
In turn, the work team now does many of the frontline manager’s former duties. Decision-making and other responsibilities have been pushed further down the line as employees at all levels take a more active role in achieving results.

Managers’ responsibilities are likely to continue to change in response to changes in the external environment. This includes changes to legislation and regulations; government policy; community expectations; downsizing and restructuring; budget allocation; patterns of employment; social trends; turnover and availability of suitable applicants for roles; and changing demographics of our workforce. New mindsets offer an opportunity for any employee to respond positively to change.
