Industrial Management Practices and Management Education in West Pakistan; A Study of Their Relationship in the Industrial Development Process.
Richard, Sandra Clayton
A study was made of relationships of industrial management practices to management education in West Pakistan's industrial development. Directors of institutions having management education courses, and over 69 managers at 30 family, government, and foreign controlled plants in Karachi were interviewed on policies, practices, and problems in organization, production, employee relations, management climate, and the selection and training of managers. It was concluded that, by permitting high profits in spite of production inefficiencies, government policies ruled out any role that management education might have played in improving industrial management practices. There was also evidence that transferability of productivity improvement techniques proved successful when applied by experienced managers, but results of applying Western developed organizational relationships and behavioral concepts were inconclusive.
