Summary

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)
