When a company (through failure to perform) seeks to shift towards adopting a strategic management philosophy then the role and significance of management development also change. An opportunity for the integration of management development into the overall process of management and hence the development of more consistency and accountability in its practice is recommended. An action research project can implement this change. This allows management in the company to design a management development framework. It involves a survey of all managers in the company to assess development needs and preferred methods; in‐depth interviews with a cross‐section of managers to explore key management development issues; and the establishing of a task force of up to 20 managers to interpret the survey and interview results in order to generate a draft management development scheme.
