This article appraises the dynamics of development at the mid‐point in the evolution of the corporate university paradigm in a large public company. It presents a summary of the key research findings that have been derived from a detailed cross section analysis of the developments to date. The methodology for the analysis is based upon a progressive process model that highlights the developmental status of the main corporate university decision strands that are essential for success. The author concludes from the research findings and considers the state of organisational readiness in the company to move further ahead into a comprehensive and viable manifestation of the corporate university concept.
