Developing Managers Through Project-Based Learning
Every educator knows that the most effective way to learn is by ’doing’ - and nowhere is that truth more clearly seen than in management development. This wide-ranging book explains what is involved in planning and running project-based management development programmes and demonstrates the benefits for both the individuals and the organizations concerned. Drawing on the unrivalled experience of PA-Sundridge Park Management Centre in this field, the authors: ¢ show how to set up the necessary frameworks ¢ describe programmes for different levels of management, including 'top teams' ¢ examine the role of the sponsor ¢ point out the potential pitfalls and indicate how to avoid them ¢ look at the influence of national culture. With summaries and checklists, and case studies focusing on ICI, Allied Domecq, Volvo, Gestetner, Lloyds Bank Insurance Services, The Inland Revenue, London Underground and others, the emphasis throughout is very much on the practical. For anyone concerned with improving managerial performance, this is a book that will repay careful study.
