Poor management cited as a key supply-side weakness for the UK

An excellent piece here in the Guardian for dissecting some of the supply-side weaknesses brought about by under-performing management especially in family-run mid-sized firms.

According to the article, foreign-owned businesses are more productive than British firms and part of the explanation is their superior management skills.

According to the author (Phillip Inman)

"Too often, management training is an afterthought, if it happens at all, and that means UK managers lack the skills and the environment to prosper."
