UK managers least qualified to make decisions

The
UK’s four million managers receive less training than their global counterparts
and have spent less time in education, new research claims.

A
report by the Work Foundation shows that the US, Japan, Germany and France all
have more management training and that British managers are the least qualified
of any comparable group.

It
argues that UK managers will continue to under perform unless they get more
support and commitment.

Andy
Westwood, co-author of the report said although the UK had a large number of
managers, they were poorly qualified and largely unprepared for the job in
hand.

He
called for a complete rethink on the way managers are prepared for workplace
problems.
