In this article, From Mediocrity to Success in Middle Management, we discuss the role of middle management and how difficult it can be yet how critical it is, especially to a truly effective 'lean' organization. We look at the challenges of the role and how important it is, but also identify some specific ways to approach it differently and increase overall effectiveness.
Middle management often doesn't get enough credit when things go well, and probably too much blame when things are off track. How we view the role in organizations should change, and we should see the value and impact it has in driving change and improvement with the workforce. Instead of being a "tour of duty", middle management should be a foundry for building effective leaders. Learn more about how you can approach this role differently and become the leader you and your people need.
