INTRODUCTION
Mintzberg (1973) identified ten separate roles in managerial work, each role defined as an organised
collection of behaviours belonging to an identifiable function or position. He separated these roles into

MONITOR: gathers internal and external information relevant to the organisation;
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.

contact manager -- figurehead and liaison
political manager -- spokesperson...
