Written in a highly accessible style by a small distinguished team, this book provides a definitive overview of the key themes and trends in management development. It focuses, in particular, on the way organisations develop their managers, and on how the managers themselves view this development. Empirically based and combining fresh, reliable data with high level analysis, the volume gives wide coverage to each area so that it can serve as a comprehensive text for senior undergraduates, MAs and MBAs in HRM and other professionals studying for IPD qualifications. Changing Patterns of Management Development provides a comprehensive and eclectic review of the state of management development at the dawn of the 21st century, and will act as a benchmark and starting-point for all future analysis of management development.
