Abstract

PCF2 // This paper examines influences resulting in changes in managerial training and development with particular reference to the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. It starts by examining conditions at the macro and micro levels that bring about change, the nature of change, and the present and future education and training implications to increasing demands on management within diverse organizational environments that are becoming more complex and uncertain. Technology is playing an increasing role in management education and training. Through the use of open and distance education technology learners have greater flexibility of time and place of learning. In addition, where transdisciplinary approaches are used it is leading to the development of "new types of managers" with abilities, behaviors and values that better enable them to cope. Examples draw on management training institutes in Mexico. //
