Management Structures and Techniques

Chapter

Abstract

Corporate management has been an important ingredient of recent local government reports (Maud1, Bains2 and Paterson3) and has aroused considerable interest among members and officers alike. It aims to provide a framework whereby the needs of a community are viewed comprehensively and the activities of the local authority are planned and directed in a unified manner to satisfy those needs to the fullest extent possible within available resources. The achievement of these aims necessitated considerable restructuring of the internal organisations of local authorities in 1974.
