Designing the Model of Strategic Competencies of Functional Managers with Thematic Analysis
Abstract:   (4625 Views)
Up to now, there is not presented a specific model for functional managers, accordingly, in this paper we try to provide such a model. Resources related to managers, especially functional managers, comprise the population of this paper. After scrutinizing resources extracted from databases, finally 95 resources remained as sample. Reliability of the findings has been estimated 0/921 by the Holsti formula. In this article with the help of thematic analysis, competency themes and thematic Network are derived. This process is done both manually and with Nvivo software. Findings of this research illustrate that functional manager competencies can be classified into three categories: strategic leadership, capability builder, and success persistent and consistent. "Strategic leadership" consists of three organizing themes and seven basic themes: Collective progression (team orientation, developing others, and context facilitator), Strategic thinking (strategy practitioner and insightful), and Charismatic (self-management and credibility). "Capability builder" consists of two organizing themes and four basic themes: Productivity (result orientation and resources optimization) and Knowledgeable (functional knowledge and ex-funxtional knowledge). "Success persistent and consistent" consists of three organizing themes and nine basic themes: Enterpreneurial orientation (opportunist, innovation orientation, and networkig), Excellence seeker (organization designer, knowledge management, and performance management), and Responsiveness (change management, flexibility, and project management).
