MANAGEMENT SIMULATION-A METHOD OF IMPROVED MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT

The discussion begins with a summary of management development concepts and then applies these concepts to a management development program. Next, the discussion focuses on management simulation as a tool for development. Advantages and disadvantages of simulaton are discussed and potential application of management simulation is shown. An analysis of simulation design philosophy and design objectives is presented for a simulation at the first-line supervisor level for a hypothetical engineering organization. Results of tests of the simulation are discussed and conclusions are drawn. The Appendix contains a guide, example of play, aids, and an example planning sheet that will provide anyone who has a copy of this paper an opportunity to play the simulation. A selected bibliography is also included for those who wish to read further on this topic of research and engineering management.
