The paper reviews the roles of managers and the attributes required. The capabilities of engineers are then considered in relation to the practice of management, and the impressions held of engineers by nontechnical people are quoted. Management education and training are seen to be vital steps in the conversion of engineers to managers. Those engineers who have not received academic education in management can obtain the necessary help from on-the-job management training. The IEE has a role to play in encouraging engineers to prepare themselves for management posts, which they can usually fill effectively.
