Management Problems

Shadow Of The Leader

58 Examples of Management Problems

 , September 21, 2021
Management problems are issues and obstacles that are beyond a manager's direct control to solve. Managers typically clear issues and design-out future issues as part of their role. Management problems are things that managers can't easily address because they have broad scope such as a tight labor market or personal scope such as an employee who is disengaged. The following are common examples of management problems.
Absent employees
Administrative overhead and red tape that cause low productivity and delays
An environment of secrecy, subterfuge or sabotage
Breakdown of customer relationships
Broken processes
Business disruptions e.g. disasters
Complex process or project dependencies
Conflict between team members / stakeholders
Critical know-how or information has been lost i.e. knowledge loss
Customers or internal clients with unrealistic expectations
Disengaged employees
Disorganization at the executive level
Employee turnover
Employees bypass process & procedures
Employees fail to adapt to change to their profession and role
Employees that are hostile to management
Employees that lack self-direction, initiative or competence
