Rahman, Md. Motiur; Mamun, Mohammad Abdullah Al
This paper is based on a survey of the executives belonging to small-scale industries in Pabna and Bogra districts. The main objective of the study is to identify the socio-economic factors that influence the growth and development of small industries. It is found in the study that majority of the executives are relatively middle age and young. Majority of these are with agriculture and business family background. The female employees are very few in the study areas. The largest number of executive had educated themselves up to the level of SSC. In fact, highly educated and technically qualified persons have not yet been attracted to managerial pursuits. The organizational structure is mostly characterized by low specialization and direct supervision by owners. Recruitment is mostly done by personal contact and on-the-job training, if needed.
