  • The Decisional Role The unique access to information places the manager at the centre of organizational decision – making. There are four decisional roles. In the entrepreneur role, the manager initiates change. In the disturbance handler role, the manager initiates change. In the disturbance handler role, the manager deals with threats to the organization will expand its efforts. In the negotiator role, the manager negotiates on behalf of the organization. The top level manager makes the decisions about the organization as a whole, while the supervisor makes decisions about his/ her particular work unit.

    a) Entrepreneur- In this role, the manger constantly looks out for new ideas and seeks to improve his unit by adapting it to changing conditions in the environment.
    b) Disturbance Handler – In this role, the manager has to work like a fire fighter. He must seek solutions of various unanticipated problems- a strike may loom large, a major customer may go bankrupt, a supplier may renege on his contract.
    c) Resource Allocator – In this role, the manger has to work and delegate authority among his subordinates. He must decide who will get what.
    d) Negotiator – The manager has to spend considerable time in negotiations. Thus, the president of a company may negotiate with the union leaders, a new strike issue: the foreman may negotiate with the workers a grievance problem.
