Special Interest Group on Leadership Development 2.0



In the past two decades expectations of management development have grown significantly. Companies invest billions in development activities and the installation of new units – corporate universities, talent management, top executive programmes etc. – in order to develop their leadership and management potentials. Nonetheless, the impact of these measures gives us cause for serious concern. In order to ride the current management development tailwind, the experts have determined the necessity to improve architecture, processes, methods, selection of vendors, and evaluation of activities.

The 2013 EFMD Leadership Development 2.0 Special Interest Group initiative was launched in response to the leadership development situation in many corporate organisations.
