Accelerating Leadership Development via Immersive Learning and Cognitive Apprenticeship
Backus, Clark; Keegan, Kevin; Gluck, Charles; Gulick, Lisa M. V.
International Journal of Training and Development, v14 n2 p144-148 Jun 2010
The authors put forward an approach to leadership development that builds on the principle of accelerated learning. They argue that leadership development, particularly in a period of recession or slow economic growth, needs to deliver results more quickly and with fewer resources. Indeed, they raise the question of whether or not this is what is necessary for training and development more generally.
