supervisor

an employee with RESPONSIBILITY for monitoring the work of others to ensure that they fulfil work targets generally established by middle managers. As such supervisors usually have little AUTHORITY in their own right, they often experience role uncertainty as they are neither ‘proper’ managers nor fully part of the group they supervise, and can thus be described as ‘men (sic) in the middle’. With the recent trend towards devolving managerial authority many organizations have attempted to enlarge the decision-making powers of supervisors. See MANAGEMENT.
