Education for General Management: The Staff College Approach. Study No. 12.
Brodie, M. B., Ed.; Life, E. A., Ed.
The staff college approach to senior management education derived its impetus from Britain. It was drawn on by other countries on their own initiative in the light of their assessment of needs. It has proven economical to transplant and can be sensitively adjusted to national needs and the local culture. The first part of this document describes the origins and evolution of the Administrative Staff College in Britain; the second part reports on applications of a similar approach to the education of generalists in management and administration, drawing on contributions from almost a dozen countries. These accounts demonstrate that the staff college as an institutional form can be modified from its original conception to meet the needs of industry, commerce, and public service for developing and improving the performance of managers and administrators in a variety of cultural and political environments.
