CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Nigeria is a country passing through multiple transition, from the period of colonialism to independence, from illiteracy, to literacy. Every manager needs his own managerial style. If he develop one which fits his personality and is realistic. It will release his energies. If he chooses one which does not suit, he will feed bossed in and be ineffective. A manager can choose an appropriate style if he understands the nature of the enterpreneunal impulse, which is the outer world, or environment. The need to understand the managers impulse is one principal theme of this research work. The second is the organization’s relationship with the enterpreneunal impulse organization cannot generate enterpreneunal impulse but they can stifle them and if they stifle these impulses. Organizations become nothing more then reactive machine, such machine suave only on the where and carneys of economic and political environment.

In Enugu metropolis, there has been a persistent increases in the poor performance of human’s resources. It is problem that has consistently forced itself on the minds of different people in different ages. It is time we should redressed our minds sincerely to the factors that militate against efficient performance of human’s resources in institute of management and technology enugu. The past government otherwise in the state failed to give an accurate graphical representation of is problem and this has perpetuated to rose some dangerous threats to the socio-economic stability of the state. Unlike before, employer do employ people that do not have future of administrative acumen to manage or administer an institution or organizations for instance, it is surprising that during the governorship election of transition to civil rule on may 29, 1997, that a medical doctor was elected a governor in Enugu state. Now, what does a doctor know about administrator, instead of pushing him to one hospital to help rescue the life of patients, he was allowed to rule, while those who studied political science were left behind to mouth about the street.

The issue of this kind has created immeasurable number of social and economic problems in the states and the country. This problem, therefore, is of staggering magnitude because it influences all our actions and reactions. It demoralizes the future leaders and effect our leadership style. The researcher also wants to find out the root cause(s) of those problem of poor performance of human’s resource in I. M. T, Enugu. In the light of those problem, the Head of State and the President, General Olusagun Obaseinjo in his 29th May, 1999, broadcast declared a war against bribery and corruption and other criminal acts that will hinder the administration. There is no doubt that the country has witnessed an up surge in erimes such as drug addition, sophisticated armed robberies, while broken homes, malnutrition and many other social lures are on increase. These are caused by unemployment of graduates in the right field. At times it will be that they do not have work at all. Other factors that contributed to this situation are the integral part of this research such factors include the failure to establish industries to absorb stridulates and other dependence on a mono-export-contented economy, etc.

The efforts of the previous governments in solving the problem will be scrutinized in order to have a balanced analysis. Finally, the answer to these questions in reaction to the historical background of the institute of management and technology (I. M. T), Enugu on the performances of their human resource, it requires meticulous evalvetion in order to find a lasting solution. The researcher will therefore use questionnaire and review of fast works in the same direction to extracted his information from the publics.
