History

Timeline[3]

  • 1945 - Sir Stafford Cripps, President of the Board of Trade, appointed a Committee, under the chairmanship of Sir Clive Baillieu, President of the Federation of British Industries (forerunner of the CBI), to formulate detailed proposals for the setting up of a central institute for all questions relating to management.

One of the reasons behind this move was the realisation that, although there were professional bodies representing functional activities, there was no comparable body for general management thinking and for the development and promotion of better management.

  • 1947 - Following the recommendations of the Baillieu Report, the British Institute of Management (BIM) was formed.
  • 1951 - The UK's first Diploma in Management Studies was introduced by the BIM and the Ministry of Education.
  • 1987 - The BIM, in conjunction with other bodies, issued two pivotal reports, The making of British managers (John Constable and Roger McCormick), and The making of managers (Charles Handy). These reports led to the formation of the National Forum for Management Education and Development (NFMED) and, subsequently, the Management Charter Initiative (MCI), which spearheaded the issue of the world's first competency-based national management standards.
  • 1992 - BIM merged with the Institution of Industrial Managers (IIM) to form the Institute of Management (IM). The awarding body status of the IIM was transferred to the new Institute.

  • 2003 - The Chartered Manager designation was launched.
  • 2005 - The Institute of Management Consultancy (IMC) became an 'organisation within the Institute'
  • 2005 – The Institute assumed the Presidency of the European Management Association (EMA) for a three year term
