Role-Playing for Supervisors explores how role-playing can help potential supervisors and supervisors already in post to get the feel of applying the principles of supervision in practice. Exercises designed to develop objective attitudes and reactions to a range of industrial problems and to grapple with these problems by assuming the roles of the real-life participants are included.

This book is comprised of 11 chapters and begins by explaining the rationale for role-playing. The next chapter is an exercise that reflects the problems faced by a supervisor of a crane manufacturing company. The following chapters present exercises that deal with industrial misconduct, a lightning strike, productivity bargaining, and restrictive practices and how to remove them. Another exercise focuses on the growth and decay of a small shipyard and the management's attempts to achieve recovery through diversification. The remaining exercises address the subject of anti-management activity; whether an apprentice who participated in a sit-down demonstration outside the factory is a revolutionary, and how to deal with him accordingly; and racialism in industry.

This monograph will be a valuable resource for supervisors and managers, employees, and company training officers.
