Management Essentials in the Industrial Sector

Simon Wallace | 25th March 2015

Developing management essentials at all levels should be a priority for top ranking executives in the industrial/construction/energy sectors, given the resurging conditions now being reported in many segments of these markets.

Managers throughout an organisation are responsible for the alignment of the business process between the seniority level above them, and the one below, profitably delivering strategy at their own level and giving feedback up and down the structure for review and improvement.

Unfortunately, managers often don’t have the necessary competency nor are they given the opportunity required to produce the desired result.

I continue to observe this problem, it is huge and one that repeatedly challenges an organisation’s ability to grow. I urge all senior executives to deal with this problem and develop their management talent to be better managers, and to be better leaders.

Managers must understand and be competent in the following key tasks:

  • Planning
  • Organising
  • Staffing
  • Directing
  • Controlling

Once these essentials are mastered, managers who are given the opportunity can easily become better managers and better leaders, able to confidently tell, show, and get out the way.

Problems are challenges and opportunities to improve business process. Invest in your management talent to ensure lasting business growth.
