One of the problems of Islamic researches,
especially in management, is that they are ambiguous and they don't
present tangible models.
The result of this problem is that managers can't
use a certain criterion to evaluate their performance through it,
because these researches usually include moral advice or point out only
the individual traits of managers, and don’t provide an applied pattern
for their daily tasks and roles.
Mintzberg roles' theory presents ten exact
managerial roles. In other words, this model answers to these questions:
What do managers do and what duties do they have?
After taking a survey on the role's theory and
accurate identification of managerial roles, it is answered how a Muslim
manager affords his/her roles, thus the behavioral method of Imam Ali (pbuh)
in theory and practice was studied, because he designed the best pattern
of Islamic management during his fully intelligent 5-year governance and
his remarks and letters are full of accurate moral and managerial
concepts for the Islamic community.
After studying Imam Ali's (pbuh) behavioral method,
we provided a model for implementation of managerial roles in an Islamic
society that includes all of daily roles and duties of managers.
