SINCE the Urwick Committee was appointed in October 1945, “To advise the Minister of Education on educational facilities required for management in industry and commerce, with particular reference to the steps to be taken in regard to the organisation of studies, bearing in mind the various requirements of professional organisations and the need for their co-ordination”, the importance of efficient management has been repeatedly stressed in relation to the productive effort of Great Britain, and the Government has already accepted the recommendation of the Baillieu Committee for the establishment of a British Institute of Management. The eighth International Conference on Management, at which Great Britain was represented, has recently been held in Stockholm. The Urwick Committee reported in August 1946, but after a meeting with representatives of the professional bodies concerned with the part-time study of management in technical and commercial colleges, certain amendments to the report were made by the Committee. The amended report now published* is not only approved by the Minister of Education, but also the institutions and associations represented at the meeting have agreed to do all in their power to implement its recommendations.
