Management Training Program in a Discount Store.
Sethi, Manmohan Singh
This study inquired into the objectives of management training programs in two chains of discount stores, and whether those who complete training believe that program objectives have been met. Questionnaire interviews were held with two managers and four trainees from one chain, and with two managers and two trainees from the other. Ten hypotheses concerning the acceptance and the realization of certain objectives were tested. These were among the conclusions reached: (1) although, as indicated by managers, training programs stressed the need for a broad view of the company and better understanding of human relations and interaction, trainees felt that such objectives were not being realized, at least initially; (2) managers and trainees need a closer interrelationship to achieve overall program objectives; (3) as far as the managers are concerned, the programs have met most of their objectives; (4) programs have given trainees a knowledge of organizational functions, helped them toward better decision making, apparently have given them self-confidence for advancing to positions of increased responsibility, and seemingly have enabled trainees to adapt their thinking to new environmental situations.
