Business strategies are reformulated constantly as organisations respond to competitors’ actions and changes in business technology. Changed strategies require supporting management structures, the design of which is facilitated by knowing the management competencies existing within the organisation. Management developers must identify common competencies that managers need, irrespective of the organisation structure, and fine tune management’s skills to meet the specific requirements of organisational strategies. Suggests how “common” competencies can be identified and a competency framework developed. A competency development approach is shown through action‐learning and sources identified for management developers.
