Leadership and corruption: impact on human factor development
MetadataShow full item record
It is not an exaggeration that corruption in many parts of Africa and, indeed, other parts of the world, has frustrated efforts by many governments and organizations to establish efficient administrations. The evil of corruption may exist in every facet and at almost every level of society. The main problems which we face in dealing with corruption relate to its identification and ways of stopping it. It is also necessary to explain what corruption is, noting in particular the view that wc cannot understand it without examining the wider pattern of the socio-political behaviour of a wide range of members in our societies. Most important in this discussion is the impact which corruption may have on the development of the content of the Human Factor (HF) in our societies. Money or technology may be important in the development process, but without people who have the necessary and appropriate HF characteristics, money or technology fail and fall flat on their faces. The molding of a human being into a useful, corruption-free person largely depends on the type of training which may be given to such a person and the rest of the HF in a society.
