Organizations face a tidal wave of global economic, technological and social change. To survive and thrive in this situation, leaders need to engage the intelligence and commitment of the whole workforce and other stakeholders. Traditional management development is not up to the job when the name of the game is survival. We need new approaches which focus on the real opportunities and problems of managers, deliver direct benefit to the business and provide a model for empowering the whole workforce. Describes an approach called “real time management development”, which meets these criteria.
