  • Upstream management: management of raw materials, inbound logistics, and warehouse and storage facilities

  • Downstream management: management of finished product storage, outbound logistics, marketing and sales, and customer service

  • Major department heads report to a president or top-level manager

  • A managerial pyramid shows the hierarchy of decision making and authority
