The following booklet titled “What is Expected of Management Trainees in Private Enterprise” was published on September 5, 1962, and was authored by Dr. S. Kumar Jain. The growing demand for good managers has resulted in corporations inculcating management training programs, which are meant to foster managerial skills in an individual and enhance his growth. In this article, the author seeks to acknowledge administrative jobs and shed light on management trainee programs. To understand the role of a manager, the author sticks with the analysis of Peter F. Drucker, who defines the constituent parts of a managerial role as the technical, organizational, entrepreneurial, and leadership functions. Elaborating on these functions, the author states that companies must provide opportunities for the management trainees to learn and grow themselves. Alongside this, the foremost task of a management trainee is to analyze his opportunities, achievements and strive towards self-development. In this context, he further describes the process and challenges of self-growth. Overall, the articles revolve around the belief that companies can merely provide opportunities to individuals; the trainee must analyze himself to achieve higher degrees of success.
