I’ve posted previously about the importance of the team leader’s and supervisor’s role in an organization.  While there have been a number of changes over the years, these roles continue to be crucial in how the organization performs.

Several societal changes restricted the supervisor’s independence. These changes included the rise of unions and the introduction of scientific management, in which managers planned the process of work in fine detail and supervisors were merely responsible for making sure those plans were followed.

More recent changes have made the role of supervisor at once more restricted and more complicated. Increasingly, restrictive government and safety regulations constrain how work must be done, the education level and demographic variety of employees have put more demands on the supervisor, and increasingly, frequent technological changes in organizations have made it difficult for supervisors to keep up with constantly changing work processes.

Throughout all of these changes, the control of the work, which the supervisor used to maintain, has been dispersed throughout the organization. Human resources departments oversee hiring, firing, and discipline; technical experts often handle the functioning of workplace technology; unions have a say in discipline, and management often sets priorities.
