Abstract

An adaptation of the inaugural address to 1991‐92 postgraduates at Imperial College, expounds the required skills of managers present and future emphasizing that they should acquire the ability to scan with an overview, as if from a helicopter. Britain′s insularity, which held good in the post‐war years, is now seen as a very large drawback particularly in relation to the growth of Japan and Germany as world economic powers. States that Britain′s future in the marketplace depends on variability and technologically literate managers.
