Management Education in a Country in Transition - The case of Slovenia

Among a variety of problems, all countries in transition are also faced with the major bottleneck of a lack of adequate managers. No transition programmes, even those which might seem ideal, can be efficiently executed if there are no managers who can implement well-designed market -oriented reforms and make former state-owned enterprises efficient and internationally competitive. Many laws and regulations are therefore not being put into effect, and the results of the transition lag substantially behind expectations because of the lack of appropriate leadership and management. It is only now being recognized (at least in some countries) that implementation of the transformation process is just as important as the ideas behind it.
