Aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies.
This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
The best companies are those that have the best people at their helm. That much is now widely acknowledged. It also stands to reason that no organization can hope to remain the best for long without effective training and development of both its present and future leaders. Traditional theory holds that managers set the standards for others to aspire to. But this notion of “leading from the front” is now under challenge from a school of thought that sees talent development as an integral part of the leadership role. Bill Gates recognized this when he said that successful managers of the future would be the ones who empower others. All this means that training and education must equip the business leader with broader range of skills than formerly believed.
Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
