Line managers are very important cogs in the managerial wheel. Discusses the Ashridge Developing Managerial Skills programme and examines line managers′ attitudes to themselves and their work objectives plus their needs and objectives. Shows the value of a learning needs audit in aiding line managers to prioritize their competences using how, what and why, as guides. Concludes that, though a young programme, the design is a proven success and can only develop into a stronger, better adolescent. Business schools can be a major help in this by building links between educational experience and life in the workplace.
