Discusses the state of management training and development in Libya. Investigates the Libyan management environment and examines the influence of a variety of factors on the management training and development programmes (MTDPs). Presents an empirical study and uses descriptive statistical methods to analyse the collected data and information. Finds that Libyan industrial companies, like those in many other developing countries, are owned, managed and supervised by government institutions. The MTD units in these companies are influenced negatively by the surrounding environment (e.g. social, economic and political factors) which imposes some constraints on MTD, and hampers the achievement of their goals. Suggests that more attention needs to be given to the environmental effects on the companies and their employees.
