Abstract [en]

This chapter examines the manager’s role in various work systems: the industrial and the post-industrial. Management is intimately dependent upon context. The post-industrial work system is characterized by flexibility. The coordination between departments and people within the organization, and between the organization and its environment, are not pre-defined by the organizational structures in the same way as they are in the industrial work system. Hence, a new managerial task arises: providing conditions and influencing the emergence of coordination in tune with a changing environment. We call this the directing managerial task. This chapter aims to give background on why the directing manager is needed and describe the directing task.
