So far we have concentrated on individuals and on organisations employing managers. In this chapter we will look at the ways in which management institutions can encourage and support management self-development.

There are, of course, various sorts of management institutions. They run different types of programmes and serve different sectors and levels of management. Some specialise in training, others provide a wider range of services, including research, consulting, and so on.

This chapter is not intended for one specific type of management institution. Its purpose is to give a number of specific ideas and suggestions on what an institution can do. It will be up to you to decide what your particular institution should do and how you should use self-development to enhance the quality of your programmes and services, and to help your clients in a new area.
