Meeting the Need for Management Development in Eastern Europe

Meeting the Need for Management Development in Eastern Europe Seeks to assess the impact of “imported” management education on the development of managers in former command economies of Eastern Europe. In particular, examines the attitudes of Hungarian managers who have completed a British Diploma in Management. Statements made by the managers in their projects were noted against a number of factors, which have previously been found to be characteristic of command and market economies, in an attempt to measure the extent to which the “cognitive maps” of the managers are evolving in response to the new situation. The analysis showed that in some areas the process has begun tentatively, but in a number of aspects is a long way from being fully internalized. The managers appear to have understood the vocabulary without necessarily internalizing the concepts required. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Educational Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Seeks to assess the impact of “imported” management education on the development of managers in former command economies of Eastern Europe. In particular, examines the attitudes of Hungarian managers who have completed a British Diploma in Management. Statements made by the managers in their projects were noted against a number of factors, which have previously been found to be characteristic of command and market economies, in an attempt to measure the extent to which the “cognitive maps” of the managers are evolving in response to the new situation. The analysis showed that in some areas the process has begun tentatively, but in a number of aspects is a long way from being fully internalized. The managers appear to have understood the vocabulary without necessarily internalizing the concepts required.
