CORPORATE PLANNING IN BRITISH SHIPBUILDERS
The formation of "British Shipbuilders", comprising 32 shipyards capable of building the entire range of merchant and naval ships, and controlling some 97% of merchant shipbuilding and 99% of naval shipbuilding in Great Britain, was established by a government act in March 1977. The act was unique in the establishment of nationalized industries in that it required the corporations to produce a corporated plan. The paper sets out to explain the approach that British Shipbuilders have adopted to meet this requirement. Order from NSFI as No. 17081.
