MANAGEMENT TRAINING IN LARGE CORPORATIONS, A SURVEY OF METHODS, PROGRAMS AND RECRUITING.
FOREMAN, WAYNE J.
A SURVEY WAS MADE OF MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS, USING DATA OBTAINED FROM 49 CORPORATIONS WITH THE HIGHEST SALES VOLUME IN 1964. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE TRAINING TECHNIQUES MOST EFFECTIVELY USED INCLUDED ON-THE-JOB TRAINING, CONFERENCE AND DISCUSSION GROUPS, AND JOB ROTATION, AND THAT UNIVERSITY COURSES, MANAGEMENT SEMINARS, AND AMERICAN MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION COURSES WERE GENERALLY USED. THREE BASIC TYPES OF PROGRAMS WERE USED--FORMAL, INFORMAL, OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH. EIGHTY-NINE PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS HAD FOUND COLLEGE PLACEMENT BUREAUS TO BE THE MOST PRODUCTIVE SOURCE FOR RECRUITING MANAGEMENT TRAINEES. ALL OF THEM RANKED INTELLIGENCE AS ONE OF THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS DESIRED. OF TRAINEES SELECTED, 48.2 PERCENT HAD BACKGROUNDS IN A SCIENTIFIC FIELD AS COMPARED TO 35.5 PERCENT WITH BACKGROUNDS IN GENERAL BUSINESS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT JOURNAL," MAY 1967, A MONTHLY JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT, 313 PRICE PLACE, P.O. BOX 5307, MADISON, WISCONSIN 53705. (SM)
