Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"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

"In today's changing business environment, traditional processes for developing leadership talent are in such a state of flux that a new vocabulary is emerging."Albert A. Vicere and Robert M. Fulmer write, "There is a little interest in the old mainstay term 'management development'. Managers today are often viewed as bureaucrats whose major function is to create complexity and preserve the status quo. 'Executive education' is a more desirable term, but in today's flatter, more networked organizations, there is a less demand for 'executives', often viewed as aloof and removed from the realities of the competitive marketplace. And the word 'education' connotes the esoteric contemplation of academic issues, a process at odds with today's fast-paced business environment. There does seem to be great interest in the term 'leadership development', which characterizes processes for identifying and developing exceptional people capable of moving an organization into the twenty-first century. Although developing tomorrow's leaders is a critical concern for most organizations, equally important is the need to create new structures and processes that will enable the organization to effectively compete in a rapidly changing, global economy. Rather than viewing these two concerns as separate challenges, benchmark organizations from around the world have begun to combine them in an expanded developmental focus which we call 'strategic leadership development'.This focus blends traditional executive education activities with management, leadership, and organizational development techniques to create hands-on, real-time learning laboratories within organizations, which facilitate concontinuous learning, continuous knowledge creation, and organizational competitiveness.Read more ›
