If an organization is to successfully accomplish its goals, it must have on hand a continuous and sufficient supply of competent management personnel. To provide for this ongoing supply of management personnel, an organization must realize through its management development program 1 that new positions will be created as it grows 2 old positions will become vacant due to voluntary and involuntary retirement 3 old skills will need to be given the new managers 4 new skills will need to be introduced into the repertoire of present managers. Management development is one activity of the organization of mutual concern to the individual manager and the organization. An organization provides formal and informal management development programs. They aim to improve current and future managerial performance by imparting appropriate knowledge, attitudes, and increasing skills. To conduct effective management programs, organizations initially need to involve themselves in a systematic analysis of management development needs. This requires an analysis of the needs of the organization as a whole, the jobs for which training will be needed, and the men who will receive the training. Thereafter, the organization must provide the conditions in which the desired learning can take place.
