Management Involvement, Training and Company Effectiveness in an African Context


  • Evans Aosa

    (University of Nairobi, Kenya)


This study examined the relationship between managerial involvement in strategy, management training and effective strategy implementation within large, private manufacturing companies in Kenya. The results were compared with those of selected studies done in other countries. The findings suggested that high managerial involvement in strategy and management training had little impact on success in implementing strategy among local companies. However, such impact was significant among foreign companies operating in Kenta. Our findings were similar to those of other African studies, but different from North American and European ones. Variations in contextual factors were cited as explanations for these findings.
