Model of Managerial dimensions
Henry Mintzberg Role Dimensions
A role is an organized set of behaviours that are identified with a specific position.
Executives use role status to facilitate interpersonal relationships with supervisors, subordinates, peers and individuals outside but connected with the organization.
Thus the managers are playing different roles.

• Monitor - Seeks and receives information to obtain thorough understanding of organization and environment.
• Disseminator role - The manager must transmit the information received from outsiders or insiders to other organization members.
• Spokes person - Information about the organization must be transmitted to outsiders
• Disturbance handler role - to take corrective actions needed to resolve important and unexpected disturbances.
• Resource allocator role - The manager allocates the monetary and non-monetary resources of the organization.
• Specific activities include developing and monitoring budgets, forecasting future resource needs and problems in acquiring them
