Abstract: Traditional manufacturing and service environments have been transformed into more physically distributed enterprise environments, which include supply chains, e-commerce and virtual enterprises. This places tremendous pressure on managers to change the ways in which they control the manufacturing and service enterprises in which they work. The role of managers has changed from managing physical assets and people to managing knowledge assets in digital enterprise environments. Therefore, it has become critical to look into the management function and the role of managers in the so-called 'digital enterprise' environment. It is our hope that this article will generate debate and further discussion on management functions in digital enterprises and subsequently will lead to additional research on the subject.
