...remuneration (related to individual merit) would come in addition to all that, and the systems of performance appraisal would be co-ordinated at a world level. Thus, in addition to more effective structures, the staff would have good reasons to achieve the pre-defined goals. "On a world scale, the organisation, he said, should be less hierarchical. For that, it would be wise to follow the approach which succeeded so well in the United States." William Johnson, the vice-president in charge of human resources was anxious. He raised the question of the acceptance of such an approach in Europe or South America. A short answer to this question was that an additional time of six months would perhaps be necessary to envisage reaching the aims of the project in these areas. "We know very well that there are national differences", said the chairman who had spent 5 years in Germany. "It will be necessary to make them understand and to appreciate the advantages of shorter networks", added the marketing director who had worked for seven years in the unit of Singapore. The financial director explained that "the cultural differences grow blurred with the growing impact of the media. It is necessary for us to be leaders in the world and to create an environment which fits the image of Missouri ". A certain number of principles which will be applied to all factories of MCC in the world was thus decided. A document entitled "How things are done at MCC" must be widely diffused so that......

...THE CONTRIBUTION OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF GHANA INTRODUCTION Project management as a management discipline underpins much economic activity. In industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, software and aerospace, projects drive business. And in the public sector, it is effective project management that translates politicians' promises of new roads, schools and hospitals into gleaming new constructions that improve everyday life. The development of Ghana Successive Ghanaian governments pursued various models of economic development throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s. In the immediate post independent era of the early 1960s, Ghana’s economic development objectives were geared towards the ‘Big Push’ primary economic policies. These revolved around: a major investment effort; an industrialization drive; increased import substitution; processing of commodities and minerals previously exported in their raw form; and direct state participation in leading areas of the economy. The 1970s ushered in a policy of increased ‘Ghanaianisation’ or indigenisation with specified industrial activities reserved for state participation, Ghana-foreign ownership, and exclusive Ghana ownership, among others. The early 1980s saw the liberalization of the Ghanaian economy and the encouragement of foreign investments. All these approaches, however, fell far short of expectations and the failures were exacerbated by adverse terms of trade, falling commodity prices, and crippling debt......
