Abstract

The role of middle managers in modern management theory has been already recognized, and this role is considered very important for the functioning of an organization. They have managed to be involved in many aspects of managing, and one of them is the novice field of knowledge management. In this chapter, the role of middle managers in knowledge creation and diffusion is explored and analyzed. A theoretical model of four middle managers' roles affecting the strategy of an organization is examined. The model was tested through a questionnaire in a sample of 241 middle managers of Greek organizations. After the analysis of the data collected, it was deduced that the theoretical model utilized was validated in the sample.
