Abstract

DIGEST OF THE ARTICLE: There are three types of managers. Technical managers strive to rationally produce the firm's output. Institutional managers cope with uncertainty in the environment. Organizational managers mediate between technical and institutional managers. The three types of managers differ according to task, viewpoint, technique, time horizon, and decision-making strategy.
