Main research outputs (forthcoming):
Research implementation is planned to be finished by end of April 2017. After the completion, research partners will prepare country-specific chapters which will be published in a book, edited by Danica Purg, Alenka Braček Lalić and Jennifer Pope. 

The following is a summary of the expected benefits of the research project to the management development institutions and/or management practitioner community:

  • By understanding management and leadership development needs, as perceived from the demand side (locally and internationally, by sectors, size of companies, etc.) management development institutions will be able to review, further improve and better target their educational programmes and processes, as well as their institutional and organizational arrangements and partnerships.
  • Businesses will achieve a better understanding of the dynamically changing and contextual management and leadership development needs. They will also be able to mitigate various vertical and horizontal inconsistencies that result if the needs are not assessed in the context and/or if the internal and external dialogues are insufficient.
  • Businesses will be better positioned to develop educational and development strategies and talent management regimes.
  • National, regional and international management development associations will receive fresh references and inspirations on how to further facilitate dialogues and collaboration among management development institutions and other learning partners.
  • The international research community will receive a rich source for deeper and more focused research that will continue providing new insights for all the above mentioned target groups.

Those involved in educational policy matters will gain a new, rich source highlighting key needs and gaps in management and leadership development.
