Skills Required of Managers in Livestock Production: Evidence from Focus Group Research
Identification of skill sets required of managers and supervisors in livestock production is necessary to guide selection, training, task assignment, and promotion. Management roles in livestock production differ from those in other industries, given the unique work environment and task attributes of production agriculture. Based on focus group discussions with pork operation managers, iterative code development resulted in five management skill sets: Change Agent, Counselor, Model Employee, Motivator, and Housekeeper. These skill sets were compared with a data set of dairy operation managers and with research in other industries based on the Competing Values Framework for managerial leadership.
