Summary

Published in 1977, this is a detailed account of the results of controversial methods as they were applied in a major company, when twenty-one managers came together for eight months to grapple with important problems for the purpose of learning some of the skills required for senior management. From their very different points of view, the course organisers, GEC’s own personnel specialists, and the managers involved, describe their experiences and discuss with unusual candour the effects on themselves as individuals and on their organisations. There is no attempt to gloss over the difficulties and the disappointments.

This is a book that will be read with attention and profit not just by personnel and management development specialists but by all managers seeking ways to improve business performance.
