The guiding policy of an IPMS Manager of Others is to get the right people doing the right work, in the right way, at the right time, for the right cost with the right quality, willingly.

IPMS will deliver a manager who will:

  • Go beyond people supervision to ensure all the services under ’their watch’ run on time, to cost and quality.
  • Forecast, plan, schedule and control service demands; determine skill levels and deliver 100% performance from the team.
  • Be capable of building a very versatile, interdependent team of Managers of Self.

Range of Role

80 – 90% of all employees work for a Manager of Others (MO) and therefore these managers have the most direct impact of all on things like morale, motivation, attitude, job satisfaction, quality and employee retention.

Managers of Others go beyond people supervision to ensure their services run on time, to cost.

They oversee the actual work at every stage of the process and are responsible for the workforce that actually touches the product or delivers the service. They are accountable for getting the right workers, to do the right work, in the right way, at the right time, for the right cost with the right quality.

They must know how to: forecast, plan, schedule and control resources against service demands; determine skills and skill levels and lift every team member up to 100% of role performance. Managers of Others are the last line of leadership defence.*
