Management Training and Development in Large UK Business Organisations

Organisations are more professional in their approach to management development than they were ten years ago – but they are still not planning enough for the future, according to a new report by consultants Harbridge House. In a survey of top UK organisations, the researchers found that most companies still plan their training on a one‐year basis – despite a general awareness on the part of management developers of the need for long‐term planning to meet the demands of the 1990s. Part of the problem lies in a lack of overall perspective: although many companies are forging stronger links between management development and corporate strategy, nearly half feel that there is not enough top management involvement in the business of training and developing managers.
