A Complete Overview of The Levels of Management

When you are a member of management in an organization, chances are that you will be on a specific level. Management levels within an organization exist to demarcate different roles within the organization or company, and to help establish a chain of command. Understanding the different levels of management is important if you are to be an effective manager, and accomplish your role in the organization.

Broadly, there are three main levels of management. You can think of the levels as a triangle, or pyramid. At the top level, there are fewer people, but they have more say in the overall direction of the company — they have more authority. This level is often called the administrative level. At the second level of management, you have those who have some authority over certain departments or projects. This is called the executory level, since those who populate it are involved in executing so that the aims of the organization are met. Finally, at the bottom of the pyramid, is the supervisory level. These are managers that have more direct contact with workers, and are mainly involved in encouraging performance, and monitoring employees.
