Can the UK manage? And what can management development do? Your views needed!


Management in the UK has had a bad press this year. It's also changing in style, delivery and accreditation, often leaving training managers uncertain about what style of development programmes are appropriate for their needs.

What do you think about management training? Is it difficult to promote, both to potential participants and to senior decision-makers? Is it often assumed that people who excel in another field will automatically make good managers, without dedicated training?

In January 2003 TrainingZONE's monthly feature will be on management and management development. We are asking our members, individual experts and a range of prominent organisations involved in management development for their opinions and contributions.

We'll be taking a look at these changing conditions, publish a range of views here on TrainingZONE, and stimulate discussion. We're looking for features, opinions and points for debate and are accepting contributions immediately, to be published in January. Guidelines for contributors can be found below.

So e-mail us with your views on what works, what doesn't work, and what needs to be worked out about management!

We are looking for discursive pieces, and our editorial policy is not to use material directly promoting an organisation, or goods and services. We do include a link to contributors' nominated sites.

Length: 300-1000 words. People tend to scan read on the internet. It is a habit we are all developing in response to the massive amount of information available. So it's good to alert readers quickly to what you are going to put before them, by using headings through a long piece, and splitting the text into relatively short paragraphs. People are accustomed to scrolling down up to a point, but there is a limit to how much they are at ease with that, so pieces as best kept to under 1200 words or split into two.

Feel free to link to other sites of relevance to your material within the piece if appropriate, but, again, not for promotional purposes.

If you would rather contribute something shorter to stimulate discussion, we are also looking for opinion pieces, which can be as brief as you choose.
