"In Leadership By Design
, Vicere and Fulmer systematically identify strategic leadership development issues, articulate various approaches to leadership development, and cite examples of successful programs. The greatest strength of Leadership By Design
is its consolidation of material that has previously been accessible only in a fragmented way. Here human resource managers will find solid and relevant research supported by practical examples and guidelines." --Morley Katz, President, Management Matters, Inc.
"A handy book to consult for a state-of-the-art introduction and discussion of current trends in the field of executive education. Leadership By Design will attract the attention of human resource professionals and others involved in the design and delivery of management development programs. Vicere and Fulmer offer timely, pragmatic advice about fundamental aspects of choosing vendors and locales as well as program goals and methods." --Frank Cespedes, Managing Partner, Center for Executive Development
