Abstract

The paper explains the principles and approach taken to introduce the general management philosophy into a community unit; and the way in which it has been implemented is also addressed. The paper also demonstrates how a management educator and practising manager have worked together in an action research mode not only to plan the ‘what’ but also the ‘how’.
