Return on Investment on Management Development initiatives

Managers submitting proposals for resources for management development porgrammes often have a really difficult job having their proposals measured on a like-for-like basis with more tangible investements: physical plant, new computer systems, etc. The bean-counters (who have the decision-making power in resource-allocation situations) have great difficulty in understanding the kind of returns that can be realised through developing management skills. The gains may be relatively intangible, but can be very impressive indeed – in fact the potential returns are so spectacular that they risk being written off as fairy tales.

If you would like to read the report on a survey that I conducted a couple of years ago in an attempt to get a handle on just how one might quantify the returns on a management development programme, email me at bmacd@dwykaprojects.com and I will gladly email you a Word document containing the report.
