Abstract: Let M be either a compact, connected p.l. manifold of dimension at least three or a compact, connected Hilbert cube manifold and let Y be a compact, connected ANR (= absolute neighborhood retract). The main results of this paper are: (i) a mapping f from M to Y is homotopic to a monotone mapping from M onto Y if and only if $ {f_\ast }:{\pi _1}(M) \to {\pi _1}(Y)$ is surjective; (ii) a mapping f from M to Y is homotopic to an open mapping from M onto Y if and only if $ {f_\ast}({\pi _1}(M))$) has finite index in $ {\pi _1}(Y)$.
