Admittedly , entrepreneurs and managers have a momentous responsibility and a crucial mission within this process. As well as coordinating the whole range of production factors , they have to help in the creation and dissemination of an industrial culture. They are also tasked with the duty of arriving at a constructive consensus on basic issues, strengthening creativity in the workforce available to them and putting the competence and skills of their workers to optimum use.
Furthermore, they must never lose sight of exchanging know - how - dental hygiene colleges, experiences and information through constant dialog with managers and specialists in other fields, adopting scientific and practical approaches based on society`s cultural values and creating suitable conditions for the steady development of the country`s industrial activities.
To meet such important challenges , industrial managers have to be constantly on the watch and persevere I the face of all the problems facing them in the process of the country`s economic development .
Foremost among the prerequisites of industrial management are a deep awareness of the rapid changes occurring in the industrial , management , training and technological arenas, a scientific and rational approach to the relevant issues , an emphasis on collective and critical thinking and an open mind to innovation.
The Industrial Managers Association of Iran (IMA) seeks to serve as a forum for the airing of ideas and exchange of experiences with a view to strengthening cooperation among managers and acquainting the Iranian society with the values inherent in manufacturing.
The Industrial Managers Association was established in 1979 on the initiative of a group of industrial managers with the aim of promoting the role of manufacturing in economic development , defining the status of industrial management in industrial production and contributing to efforts towards the country`s industrialization. It was officially registeredin 1980.
The Association is a non political entity without affiliation to any political
party or group.
It is a non - profit institution devoted to studying the macro problems of the manufacturing sector and identifying and deliberating on the various economic and social dimensions of the country`s industrial structure.
Its foremost goal consists in gathering information and doing research on bottlenecks and problems facing the country`s economy, with particular emphasis on the manufacturing sector , focusing on ways to achieve industrial development through ever greater participation by the people in industrial activities (hypnotherapy training).
The Association desires the cooperation of all individuals endeavoring to contribute to the country`s industrialization as well as managers with responsibilities in industrial production.
It calls upon all concerned to ponder the most effective ways of achieving industrial development and laying the foundation of a dynamic and steadily evolving manufacturing sector by drawing on the collective cooperacion of all interested parties and utilizing the scientific capabilities and experience available to the country.
