More people are preferring advisory to executive roles, and organisations are beginning to suffer from a lack of candidates for what is increasingly seen as the thankless task of management. This trend is being encouraged by mistaken management development practices and views of the managerial role, low salaries and status, the rise of the professional “guru”, and career blockage in organisations. A revised approach to management development is suggested, with fostering of managerial talent from an early age and increasing the value placed on “general management” as a career.
