  • Administrator – assures that organizational processes are systematized: that there are producers and that events happen in the right sequence with the right intensity -> ensures efficiency in the short run.
  • Enterpreneur – visionary role ensuring that the organization takes the right direction, combining creativity with willingness to take risks -> assures existence of future services and products, which future clients will want and seek.
  • Integrator – building climate and system of values that motivates individuals to work together, so that no one is indispensable -A rendering the company efficient in the long run.
