Factory managers in Soviet Russia must deal continuously with the Communist Party, an administrative superior, and the union. Although each manager must assume sole responsibility for administrative decisions in his plant, he shares the responsibility for technical decisions with his chief engineer. Himself an engineer, the manager is appointed as a result of his natural aptitudes for organization and administration. Schools of business administration are not thought to be necessary in Soviet Russia.
