- Background of the study
All over the world management is know to be the very aspect that has contributed immensely in the development of any country’s economy. It is also refer to coordination of the resources of an organization through the co-operative efforts of others in order to achieve a given target or objective but when any establishment or economy is enable to co-ordinate its resource and the activities of others. Through the process of planning organization directing and controlling in other to achieve a set objectives then poor management is in place Poor management could also result from inadequate managerial ability. It could be the inability of the management to utilize the scarce resources under their control as well as the inability to apply the required manpower for executing a particular task. An establishment or organization could experience poor management when all the require equipment unable to manage the scarce resources effectively this is the possibility of ineffective management. Poor management goes with a lot of uncountable effects which are disastrous and spread like a wild fire. No establishment or economy will like to experience the effect of poor management but nobody can change it especially which poor management has been nursed in an establishment.
In a situation like this no individual will like to associate with such establishment there by scaring people away and the work as of such establishment to not stand the chance of being exposed in any from.
The contribution of land capital and labor are not effectively utilized the inability to communicate effectively with the outside world and not being able to compete favorable with other establishments which leads to the lost of people/ public interest. Furthermore the services rendered are very poor not to talk about the substandard quality of their products resulting from their absence of training and not applying the modern techniques of management and production the establishment will only be coming across losses and no profit will be made. The is a state and no individual will be encouraged to do business with such establishment because the quality of their service is below what is expected and the economy of the country is affected badly. Worldwide, state-controlled or centrally planned economies are being substituted with market-oriented economies with the private sector as the main engine of growth. In that regard, several developing countries have embarked on initiatives to boost the private sector. These initiatives include new investment regime, trade liberalization and privatization of state owned enterprises. The emphasis on private sector development coupled with the growing globalization of world production and trade in recent years have made investment, particularly foreign direct investment very crucial in industrial development in particular and economic development in general. Over the years, Nigeria, like other developing countries, has adopted a private sector-led growth with emphasis on policies that will promote investment and industrial development. Recognizing the leading role of the private sector organizations in economic growth does not necessarily mean that the nature of its role in fully understood. With so much focus on the role of the private sector throughout the world , the key question to ask is how can the problems/challenges and prospects of private sector organizations be harnessed and managed to bring about economic growth and a sufficient quality of life to the people. Providing answers to this question amongst others is the sole objective of this paper, and doing this is more important to developing countries like Nigeria who are always at the receiving end of different development paradigms. It needs be pointed out that posing such a question as the sole aim of the paper in no way discounts the essential and invaluable prospects of the sector. Organizational effectiveness rests on the efficient and effective performance of workforce that makeup the organization. The efficient and effective performance of the workforce in turn, rest on the richness of the knowledge, skills and abilities possessed by the workforce. Capacity building and development in most organizations is a continuous act/exercise. The inexorable march of time and the ceaseless glamour for social change combine to make adaptability and continuing preparation of the workforce as inevitable as the initial acquisition of knowledge and skills. This cannot happen if employees‟ capacity building and development do not occur in an enterprise. In other to maximize the productivity and efficiency of the organization, every executive, manager or supervisor in a public or private organization has the responsibility and indeed the bounding duty to ensure the development of their employees who have requisite knowledge and expertise (Dada, 2004) Capacity building is like sharpening an existing skill in order to reflect the trends in technology and other social –cultural environmental changes of an organization. Productivity is the goal of today‟s competitive business world and capacity building can be a spring board to enhance productivity. The aim is to enable them contribute their full measure to the welfare, health and development of the organization (onah 2007). The main objective of capacity building and development in FRSC is to increase efficiency of employees with 2 the resulting increase in corporate productivity. This accounts for why a large number of fund and time is expected by organization at one period or the order in the improvement of the skills of their employees at various levels. The principal intention of capacity building according to Akinola (2007), is to equip people with the knowledge required to qualify them for a particular position of employment, or to improve their skills and efficiency in the position they already hold. Manpower development on the other hand, implies growth and the acquisition of wide experience for future strategic advantages of the organization. Capacity building and development therefore, improves the effectiveness and efficiency of the employee. Therefore, the aim of this research is to know the current state, nature, procedure and method of capacity building and development used by the Guaranty Trust Bank for their employees and let‟s not forget that any organization that has no plan for the capacity building and development of its staff is less than dynamic for learning is a continuous process and acquired skills get obsolete when the environment changes. Also, a popular caption in the field of personnel management says, “If you think capacity building and development are expensive try ignorance‟‟. While capacity building and development prosper organization, ignorance destroys it. Therefore, workers like machines must be updated on constant basis or else, they end up becoming obsolete or misfit (Muhtar, 2007).
- STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The challenge of human capital development for developing nations is daunting. This is in consideration of how far ahead the rest of the world is and the enormous efforts and resources required of them to catch up. Nigeria’s high population, vast socio-cultural diversity, yet-to-mature political culture and the great hope repose on her to emancipate the black-race, makes the challenge even more critical for us. The good news however, is that there is cause for great optimism because the nation has more than enough human capital potentials to surmount the challenge if harnessed, activated and effectively channeled.
