Mintzberg (1973) identified ten separate roles in managerial work, each role defined as an organised

DISSEMINATOR: transmits factual and value based information to subordinates;
SPOKESPERSON: communicates to the outside world on performance and policies.
Decision making
ENTREPRENEUR: designs and initiates change in the organisation;

DISTURBANCE HANDLER: deals with unexpected events and operational breakdowns;
RESOURCE ALLOCATOR: controls and authorises the use of organisational resources;
NEGOTIATOR: participates in negotiation activities with other organisations and individuals.
