Abstract

The history of audio‐visual training packages over the last 21 years is examined. Little has changed with respect to subject matter or interactivity but there is now less government sponsorship and less industrial production of specialist educational films. Today′s scene is overwhelmingly commercial and there is much competition to exploit the growing training market.

Abstract

Alec M Hughes has recently been viewing the six film series of management training films, featuring the Rt Hon Lord Wilfred Brown PC, chairman and managing director of the Glacier Metal Co Ltd from 1939 to 1965, and Minister of State at the Board of Trade, with special responsibility for exports from 1965 to 1970. During his chairmanship Glacier Metal was transformed from a technologically backward company to the largest organisation of its kind in Europe. During this period too the company became famous for the management experiments which were initiated and the management techniques adopted which contributed to the firm's success. This film series presents the theories expounded in Lord Brown's book ORGANISATION — concepts which form the basis of the management training programmes at the Glacier Institute of Management — dealing with practical methods of improving industrial relations and company performance. This colour series is available either in 16 mm print form or in video cassette. The average length of each film is 30 minutes.

Abstract

Training Films International began to build up its distribution service with films on industrial safety and health and now has a very useful library of films on these subjects. It has now started to extend its scope with films on other aspects of management. Alec Hughes reviews here the American series produced by CMA Productions concerned principally with individual behaviour. Made between 1972 and 1974 the series is naturally geared to American situations many of which would be different in some of their implications for British audiences. All are colour films.

Abstract

NOT THE NAME OF A NEW TYPE OF HOVERCRAFT OR A LUNAR module, but the label attached by management to a film report for the British Oxygen Company on a new wages policy linked with changes in management practice and work‐force structure. E. J. B. Leach, Divisional Personnel Manager of the Gases Division of BOG told us all about it recently, at the British Industrial Film Festival in Brighton. In introducing a new productivity agreement in 45 works scattered all over the country senior management wished to inform all staff as quickly and accurately as possible. Film seemed a good way of doing this. So WAGES STRUCTURE REVIEW No. 1 was made by their own in‐plant film unit to permit the managing director personally to address some 3,000 administrative staff and 4,000 shop‐floor personnel at their individual places of work. It was a film assignment which involved travel all over the country for the film‐makers since the essence of the project was not only to present management policy but also to record the varied reactions of individuals to the preliminary information they had received about it. Nor was it simply a question of getting an agreed policy over to the workers. Individual managers had to be convinced themselves of the value of the new scheme and each of the 7,000 managers, technicians and workers had to see their place in the new set‐up. By presenting the film as near simultaneously as possible at each of 45 works misunderstandings could be avoided, rumour scotched, and discussion and constructive comment promoted.

Abstract

The librarian and researcher have to be able to uncover specific articles in their areas of interest. This Bibliography is designed to help. Volume IV, like Volume III, contains features to help the reader to retrieve relevant literature from MCB University Press' considerable output. Each entry within has been indexed according to author(s) and the Fifth Edition of the SCIMP/SCAMP Thesaurus. The latter thus provides a full subject index to facilitate rapid retrieval. Each article or book is assigned its own unique number and this is used in both the subject and author index. This Volume indexes 29 journals indicating the depth, coverage and expansion of MCB's portfolio.

Abstract

THE NEED FOR GOOD MANAGEMENT TRAINING FILMS THE IMMEDIATE ROAD AHEAD IN THE TRAINING FIELD is becoming very clearly defined. There is great satisfaction with the progress made over the past four years or so with operator training and manual skills training generally. Now well on the way, this training activity will continue, becoming in the process both more widespread and more refined.

Abstract

In the October 1971 edition of Industrial and Commercial Training Tony Matthews, producer of the new BBC series CONFLICT AT WORK, discussed the general scheme for the ten programmes and the philosophy behind them. I have now had a chance to view four of the programmes in film form, the format in which many are likely to see them once the second series of afternoon transmissions has been concluded by the BBC. Some, indeed, might well see them in film form during this period, either in order to fit them in to a more convenient time or as an opportunity to have a follow‐up viewing after one or more of the television transmissions.
