James T. McCay the author of THE MANAGEMENT OF TIME was a business visionary and a man ahead of his time. Acting as counsel on organization growth and executive development to some forty Canadian and United States corporations he was chairman of Integron Associates Incorporated of Montreal, co-ordinators of integrated development projects.
He graduated from the University of British Columbia in Chemical Engineering in 1943 and promptly went to the Persian Gulf to work on an oil refinery construction project. On return to Canada he helped to found a company which manufactured and distributed heating equipment nationally. After that time, he practiced as a consultant to management on plant design, work analysis and process controls.
It was in 1953, that with Dr. J. S. Bois that he formed Bois, McCay and Associates (later becoming James McCay and Associates Ltd.) and developed a series of programs for executive training as well as leading numerous seminars on self-development and the management of time. Ten years later McCay commenced planning of the Integron in collaboration with architect Victor Prus. Travels in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and the Orient together with interviews with several hundred leaders in governmnet, industry, universities as well as researchers in the sciences of man, helped McCay to nurture the growth of the Integron concept and Integral Development.
