The new education commissioning system in England is designed to deal with the “big numbers” of professional education, yet also applies to management development. Reviews national advice in this field. Suggests that management development is unlikely to feature highly on the education commissioning agenda. Proposes that changes in higher education and among NHS employers are likely to lead to greater flexibility in management education, but that opportunities will only be taken if both parties show initiative and imagination.
