Mintzberg's theoretical framework of management, which examines the roles and functions of a manager in relation to effective communication, is used to analyse observational data of managerial conflict within a community health setting In this setting the manager failed to establish sound interpersonal relations with her peers or with the clinic nurses This led to a poor information base from which she could make decisions The result was that the group became stressed and developed signs of disintegration
