This paper 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.


So is it full marks all round to India’s business leaders? Well, not quite, because some of them stand accused of not giving due importance to training. Training is recognized as an integral part of work and development if an organization is to be successful, with the USA spending billions of dollars on employee training and development. However, look closely at large and important companies in emerging markets, including India and China, and it can be seen that, in spite of enormous business opportunities, many of them are still falling short of their operational and revenue goals.

Practical implications

The paper 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.
