Management and skilled worker deficits during the transition from the planned to the market economy: reasons, solution concepts, measures
by Erich Staudt
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 9, No. 8, 1994

Abstract: The qualification and training of managers and skilled workers is proving to be a crucial bottleneck in the transition from centrally-planned to market-led economies in the former East Germany and other states of the former Eastern Bloc. Rather than the wholesale importation of Western training courses, the author advocates solutions to the managerial and skill deficits which are based on activating the potential of managers and skilled workers who already hold key positions in companies and organizations.
