Abstract

Investigates (through interviews) the link between business needs and staff development policies within the Agricultural Development Bank of Pakistan. Analyses the Bank′s corporate planning cycle with a view to suggesting improvements that focus more clearly on staff performance needs. The corporate planning cycle should involve a more client‐based analysis of need which can then be matched against the strategic aims of government and international donors. Targets on performance and employee development can emerge that draw on the ideas of managers at all levels and build their commitment to the strategic aims. The training function could move into a more strategic role.
