Management development programmes are increasingly being studied and evaluated, regarding their efficiency and effectiveness. Presents the results of a survey of 155 directors and vice‐presidents of personnel and human resource management departments regarding the current status of their management development programmes. The results indicate that management development programmes do not seem to differentiate between levels of management. This held true across a wide spectrum of training areas. The results also indicated that the approach used in teaching (pedagogy) was consistent across management levels. This lack of variety according to management level seems to go counter to current theory regarding the differences in skill requirements between management levels.
