The key design considerations for putting together effective management development activities are briefly reviewed. The Managerial Problems Survey, one mechanism for operationalising these design considerations, is described, followed by a case study of how one organisation used these ideas. Several suggestions are then presented for how organisations and their managers can increase the relevance and benefits of management development efforts.
