Little has been written about developing directors and even less about how to integrate learning on a formal programme with learning through work itself. New research on learning from experience is reviewed and the four approaches which were found to have been used by directors are described. Examples are given of programmes built on structured work‐shops for directors of two major UK companies; how working on real projects within such workshops can be integrated with “normal” learning from experience is illustrated. Finally it is shown how this form of devel‐opment improves organisational performance.
