Strategic Executive Development

What are the executive development practices that make a critical difference to organizational prosperity and deliver superior bottom-line performance?

Strategic Executive Development—written by three leaders in the field of executive development, James F. Bolt, Michael Dulworth and Michael McGrath—shows how world-class companies use executive development to drive business strategy and affect growth. This important resource presents five strategic uses of executive development that produce demonstrable business impact. Based on empirical data gathered from their extensive research and consulting, and a comprehensive survey of executive development in leading organizations, this book answers the key question: What are the investments in executive development that have the biggest impact?

Using illustrative case studies, the authors clearly demonstrate how executive development is being successfully implemented at some of the world's most recognizable and enduring companies. These cases describe what is working and why, offer insights into the key process steps, and show how companies have measured and validated the effects of executive development. Strategic Executive Development offers the framework needed to create an executive development strategy and program that will help your organization achieve measurable business results and develop the executive capabilities needed to win in the marketplace.

Strategic Executive Development is filled with cutting-edge advice and support for program design and development, as well as multiple tools—guidelines, checklists, and templates—for creating high-impact executive development programs and processes, and for measuring the results.

Synopsis:

Praise for Strategic Executive Development

"This book illustrates what we firmly believe at UBS, namely that leadership development is a key means for driving and aligning corporate strategy and culture, thus going far beyond the traditional concept of management education and training. Positioned this way, it is a powerful and not easily replicated competitive advantage."

—Peter Wuffli, president and CEO, UBS AG

"In this day and age, nothing is more important than strategic executive development. Jim Bolt has done a great job in creating a book that is rich in texture with practical, realistic case histories."

—Ram Charan, coauthor, Execution and Confronting Reality

"Jim Bolt continues to support practitioners in designing and developing executive development strategies that accelerate business success. He provides practical advice for addressing business challenges and executive development methods for creating the organizational capability and alignment needed for business success. I have personally been guided by the five high impact uses of executive development."

—Susan Burnett, senior vice president, People and Organization Effectiveness, Gap Inc.

"Brimming with sage guidance and detailed case studies, Strategic Executive Development contains the cumulative wisdom of three master practitioners of executive development."

—Jay A. Conger, coauthor, Growing Your Company's Leaders and professor, Claremont McKenna College

"A great step-by-step guide for creating executive development programs. Real world cases and a good overview of how executive development can be used to impact the organization."

—Val H. Markos, executive director, Leadership Development, BellSouth Corporation
