Supervisory Management is designed to enable first-level supervisors to understand their roles and to use appropriate management tools to build and maintain quality performance by their subordinates. The supervisor’s job has been changing dramatically in recent years. In personnel management, supervisors now work with a more diverse workforce in terms of race, gender, and ethnic background. Personnel reporting to supervisors carry broader responsibilities in actual tasks, team relationships, and matrix/project responsibilities. To get the most out of today’s agile workforce, corporate management hierarchies are now flatter and more project-driven.

As management recognizes the value of the participation and commitment of employees, effective supervision is vital to the success of the organization.
