ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role of management development in Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS). The role was discussed in a seminar held at NHS training directorate's (NHSTD) Eastwood Park Training Centre in Gloucestershire, England. The seminar entitled "From Bureaucracy to Enterprise" was based on a study, commissioned by NHSTD, on the importance and role of management development strategy in implementing successful change. The key message by physician Christina Townsend, NHS national training director, was that meeting the challenge of change has always been a primary need of organisations, but the extent and nature of change facing NHS in present times requires a very special response. Developing skills of health service managers is a crucial part of that response. Townsend also added that however, it is not sufficient to concentrate on responding to individual management needs and to developing skills and motivation alone. The management development strategy must be directed at changes, it must be coordinated and designed to reach all managers throughout NHS.
