managers lack expertise and skills to steer firms

Published by Ralph Moody


A survey of 750 managers has recently found that two thirds admitted they were ineffective, many questioned their own team management skills. The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) said its research revealed ‘significant’ skills gaps.

Ann Francke, CMI chief executive said “Business optimism is on the up but this is a reminder that no employer can afford to neglect their managers’ skills  if they’re serious about success.  Management short-comings are already part of the reason why the UK lags behind competitors like the US and Germany and we could fall further behind if we don’t prepare now for the future” She added "While managers can see that changes in the business environment will transform how they work, many admit to lacking the skills needed to make the most of the opportunities ahead.  Employers need to prioritise these critical management skills to future-proof their business"
