A recent learning programme funded by Sheffield TEC, targeted specifically at “tough nuts”, i.e. small organisations with no history of formal training and development for those in management positions, is examined. The background to the approach based on mentoring and coaching is explained. Findings from an impact study of 20 case organisations are presented.
