Management in Industry
Jeanette Norman , Management Consultant, Australia

Understanding management responsibilities in industry.

Too often management in industry is characterised by highly skilled individuals who have demonstrated planning, organising and interpersonal aptitudes that have 'led them places'. Accordingly this is acknowledged by grateful organisations through promotion and advancement.
Sadly, however, the acknowledgement stops there - these highly skilled individuals are then failed by the same system that initially supported them by a lack of training and professional development and mentoring in how they can rise above their trade skills and experiences and build on management skills and experiences - learning to transfer their knowledge and experience, rather than attempting to keep on doing that, as well as undertake the additional responsibilities of management.
Effective management systems must include an organisational culture of management learning and support through dedicated and driven coaching, mentoring and training systems so that managers learn the critical skills of leadership and management, rather than fending for themselves. This will prevent further safety, personnel and mis-management issues.
