Description

Written from a practitioner viewpoint with case studies and examples from a wide variety of industries, this is a practical text for Learning & Development and Human Resource practitioners, providing an in-depth treatment of all the aspects of people development within today’s organizations. Readers will want more than just the theory – they want to know how to apply it as an internal consultant and what the potential pitfalls can be. Most importantly, they want practical strategies for introducing and implementing new management development practices. The text shows how to apply new approaches to old problems and provide new ways of creating high performance within an organization.

This book offers an in-depth explanation of the key principles, problems to be addressed and strategies for success in developing effective managers and leaders. The style is both pragmatic and tactical, based on academic theory but grounded in the day to day reality of what is possible in today’s organizations.
