Abstract

Some of the most common characteristics in the vast amount of literature dealing with management development (MD) appear to be the lack of clear definition as to the context of the field and the enormous variations which appear in practice both among organisations and training institutions. Some reasons for these variations can be found in the complexity of ideas and concepts in management theory which are in turn reflected in MD practice.
