A Survey of the Effectiveness of Management Development Programs.
Spautz, Michael E.
This paper summarizes the results of a survey of recent unpublished research studies, conducted in private industry and business, on the effectiveness of a variety of programs designed to develop management abilities. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information about private industry training evaluation practices which might be used or adapted for use by Federal agencies. Out of a total survey sample of 244, 17 studies were located that were substantial enough to be included in the report. The summaries are organized into two major categories defined in terms of the type of criteria against which the programs are evaluated: (1) external criteria; and (2) internal criteria. In addition, the criteria used in a particular study are classified into four levels of sophistication: (1) participants' reactions; (2) learning; (3) behavior change; and (4) results. Some general conclusions, recommendations, and the questionnaire used in the study are also presented. (CL)
