This manual, prepared by PADCO, for the Government Training Institute of Kenya, contains a one-week training management programme for training of trainers, focusing on: communication as a management skill; leadership in supervision; performance standards; planning process; problem-solving and decision-making; resource planning; work unit performance; and development of effective work teams.

The manual was prepared in a format such that any trainer with a basic knowledge of supervision and the local authority structure would be able to pick up the training package and conduct the programme. Each of the modules has an overview sheet which gives the module title, the approximate amount of time required to complete the module and an overview of the module content.

In the introduction, a guide for the trainers explains how to use the modules. It gives some description of each of the techniques used in the training programme, advice on how to make training programmes effective and some guidelines on adult education. The manual was written for the training of supervisors in local authority institutions or supervisors of technicians; however, many of the characteristics discussed are critical for good supervision at any level in an organization, and, therefore, the manual is a handy guide for ideas and points to think about when developing a short-term training programme.

Although the training was designed for Kenya, many of the exercises are very western-oriented and, therefore, are not appropriate for every audience without adaptation to take into account cultural and social conditions. Nonetheless, very few manuals deal with the role of the supervisor; with how groups function and with how leadership affects team performance; thus, some of the ideas presented in this manual would be of interest to trainers who are involved in creating a training course on these topics.
