The paper deals with the conception of the professional manager. In the current Czech management environment the terms of professionalism and professional manager are not defined, understood and respect properly. The paper was written on the basis of a primary research among 112 middle and top managers in the Czech Republic.
The beginning of the paper focuses on the introduction of the method used for the research and then follows the evaluation process of the respondents’ answers. These answers were noticed and transformed into the electronic form for the subsequent evaluation process, which is described in detail in the results part. The categories were stated on the basis of recurrence of the characteristics in the ans­wers, and the frequency of these characteristics was measured.
The outcome of the paper is the specification of the term ‘Professionalism’ and the characteristics of the term ‘Professional Manager’ by above mentioned research. The research results are discussed with the literature review in the concluding part, and the opportunities for the further development are given.
