Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study is twofold; first, to describe and analyze the most significant problems encountered by managers of manufacturing plants in developing countries. American managerial techniques are taken as basis of comparison. Second, to suggest approaches and points of view which can be useful to managers and students having managerial interests in developing countries. This work discusses the most important influences of the environment on management techniques. It also studies the relationships which exist between culture and the management of the work force, the selection of production processes, the acquisition of equipment and technology, and the influence that governments have in these processes. A model to help visualize the relationships between the characteristics of the environment and the efficiency of managerial techniques is presented. Based on this model, the most prominent managerial methods and procedures are discussed in relation to their adaptation to the conditions encountered in developing countries. From the discussion, it can be concluded that some aspects of management are universal and can be generally applied, while there are others that lack universality, mainly in the area of interpersonal relationships. Nevertheless, there is a great amount of wisdom and experience in American management that can be successfully applied in developing countries. It seems, furthermore, that the development of management and technology due to its complexity cannot be attained wholly by individual efforts; governmental action appears as a necessary force behind the changes, especially creating a more adequate environment for any private initiative. The direct participation of consulting agencies, both public and private, can be considerably helpful in the implementation of these new techniques on industrial enterprises.
