Line Managers have a very important role to play, not only in managing people and operations day-to-day, but also in implementing HR and other organisational policies and in supporting their team's development and fostering a culture of staff performance, positive employee relations and employee engagement.  It is also the case that Line Managers should play an active and constructive role in leading and managing change in their organisations.  This is particularly the case in organisations which devolve these activities to Line Managers.  In view of this, it is important to give proper thought to how Line Managers are supported and developed to make sure they have the necessary knowledge and skill to be successful in their role.
