Management Matters in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland

Date published: 01 March 2009

Detailed investigative research into the management practices currently in use in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.


The objectives of this research were to:

  • compare the levels of managerial skills with those in Great Britain and other countries;
  • identify areas of weakness in the management practices of manufacturing firms;
  • identify the factors that may account for the differences;
  • indicate where targeted improvements could improve performance and investigate whether similar issues also apply in tradable services firms.
