SURVEY OF MANAGEMENT TRAINING NEEDS AND FACILITIES IN SOME AFRICAN COUNTRIES 1964. MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT SERIES, 4.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland). Human Resources Dept.
THIS IS THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR OFFICE REPORT OF THE INVESTIGATION OF MANAGEMENT TRAINING NEEDS AND FACILITIES IN AFRICA. THE DISCUSSION OF NEEDS AND PROBLEMS REPRESENTS A CONSENSUS OF THE MOST INFORMED OPINION AVAILABLE TO THE INDUSTRIALIST WHO WAS ENGAGED AS EXPERT AND SPENT UP TO FOUR WEEKS IN EACH OF 13 COUNTRIES--ETHIOPIA, UGANDA, MALAWI, CAMEROON, NIGER, IVORY COAST, SENEGAL, TANZANIA, ZAMBIA, CONGO, NIGERIA, GHANA, AND SIERRA LEONE--IN 1963 AND 1964. PRACTICALLY ALL THE BIGGER UNDERTAKINGS IN AFRICA WERE STILL EFFECTIVELY MANAGED BY EXPATRIATE STAFF TRAINED IN EUROPEAN OR AMERICAN MANAGEMENT METHODS AT A SOPHISTICATED LEVEL. IN ORDER TO PUT AFRICANS INTO MANAGEMENT POSITIONS, THERE WOULD HAVE TO BE A MASSIVE TRAINING EFFORT ACROSS THE CONTINENT, EMPLOYING THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNIQUES OF ACCELERATED INSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT. PART I GIVES A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF AFRICA AND SOME GENERALIZATIONS CONCERNING THE NEEDS OF THE SMALL ENTREPRENEUR, THE SUPERVISOR, MIDDLE MANAGEMENT, AND SENIOR MANAGEMENT. PART II PRESENTS THE DATA FOR EACH COUNTRY INCLUDING A TABLE INDICATING NUMBER IN EMPLOYMENT BY PUBLIC SECTOR AND BY VARIOUS TYPES OF INDUSTRY IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR, A LIST OF MANAGEMENT TRAINING FACILITIES WITH BRIEF ANNOTATIONS OF THEIR OFFERINGS, AND A COMMENTARY ON THE MANAGEMENT TRAINING REQUIREMENTS AND FACTORS AFFECTING THEM. AN APPENDIX CONTAINS A LIST OF THE PRINCIPLE PERSONS SEEN IN EACH COUNTRY DURING THE MISSION. (RT)
