Explains how most people with managerial responsibility have a specialist background. Also, most management may be undertaken by “hybrids” who combine specialist activity and managerial responsibility. Unless the process of converting specialists into part‐time or full‐time managers is carefully planned, management responsibilities may be neglected in favour of specialist activity. Key interventions are in the areas of role definition, selection, management development and monitoring.
