This article describes the conceptual background of some recent research on the organisational context of managerial roles. The guiding principle is the idea that the notion of management competence is not independent of the notion of organisation as context for the deployment of managerial performance. Through a discussion of some general aspects of contemporary organisation theory, an alternative way of thinking about organisations is introduced which leads to an alternative view of management competence.
