The Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA) has increasingly come to prioritise the provision of support to the development of public administration and public management in the Third World countries with which it co‐operates. This article by two of SIDA′s officials responsible for such support looks into issues which need to be taken into account when an international agency tries to provide support to improving public sector management. It considers the problems of institutional training and on‐the‐job training of managers, and proposes the conclusion that SIDA has drawn: that improving management has to be done through developing training institutions which also have a research and consultancy profile.
