Evaluating the impact of management development on performance

Jonathan Winterton, Ruth Winterton

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes a research project, undertaken for the UK Department for Education and Employment, which investigated the impact of management development upon performance in sixteen organizations. The aim is to contribute to debates both on the role of HRD in improving performance and on ways of evaluating HRD impacts. While much of the literature on measuring the impact of HRD on performance is from the USA, the debates take on a particular significance in the UK context because it has long been recognized that UK managers are inadequately trained and qualified in comparison with those of competing nations.
