Managerial competencies for middle managers: some empirical findings from China
Purpose ‐ This study aims to identify managerial competencies required for successful middle managers in China. Design/methodology/approach ‐ First a questionnaire survey was distributed among MBA and EMBA students at a major university in China, and then two case studies were conducted to collect more in-depth data. Findings ‐ The findings of this study suggest that team building, communication, coordination, execution and continual learning are critical competencies for the success of middle managers in China. Implications for future research and practices are also discussed. Originality/value ‐ The literature review shows that although previous leadership competency studies are extensive, little research has been conducted to explore the competencies required for middle managers. This study would contribute to fill the gap in the literature.
