Supervisory Development

Supervisory Development

Supervisory Development


Supervisory development is an effort that enhances the learner's capacity to be a supervisor.
Supervision often includes conducting basic management skills (decision making, problem solving, planning, delegation and meeting management), organizing teams, noticing the need for and designing new job roles in the group, hiring new employees, training new employees, employee performance management (setting goals, observing and giving feedback, addressing performance issues, firing employees, etc.) and ensuring conformance to personnel policies and other internal regulations.
Supervision is a management role -- areas of knowledge and skills required by new managers often include those required by new supervisors.
 The difference between supervision and management can be better understood by having a look at the subjects offered in supervision programme by NAIT.
