Adult Learning in Executive Development Programs
Wuestewald, Todd
Adult Learning, v27 n2 p68-75 May 2016
Executive development programs (EDPs) have undergone significant change since their introduction in the early 20th century. As an adjunct or alternative to traditional education, EDPs are considered an efficient means of imparting critical, functional, and social-behavior skills to current and future organizational leaders. Consequently, such programs have undergone tremendous expansion in terms of breadth, the role they play in workforce education, and particularly the instructional strategies they employ. This article reviews the historical evolution of EDPs with particular attention to recent and future pedagogical trends. The author cites contemporary examples from participant observations with EDP in the public sector.
