Learming Hub

1970s-1980s

During the 1970s and 1980s, IMI hosted a succession of developing managers from countries such as Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

Typically targeted at directors of governmental, charity and private businesses, the programmes equipped participants with best practice tools for contemporary management.

Such initiatives were relatively common in this period. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and the end of the Russian communist bloc soon after, IMI ran a series of programmes for business leaders in Eastern European countries such as Hungary, Romania, Ukraine and Poland to develop their management capabilities.
