Current Project Milestones

After two successful international project meetings research partners are currently working on analysing data collected during project preparation stage. The data was gathered using qualitative in-depth interviews with management personnel in 10 companies in every state, accompanied by a quantitative survey distributed to a wider range of companies.

The analysis will result in individual country reports, case studies and a cross-country report. These findings combined with new information and skills gained on LTT events organized by CEEMAN, will later be used to develop new guidelines for education on management and leadership skills.

Partners will soon meet at start of April for their first joint learning and training event, where we will focus on program & education process management. They will gain theoretical and practical insight that will enable them to develop more in depth and auspicious guidelines.

Results, study and guidelines will be presented in a scientific book on “Management and leadership Development Needs in Dynamically Changing Societies”, which will be published by Springer. Intellectual outputs will also be available in a more raw form on Erasmus+ Project Results Platform that serves as a source of inspiration “from the pool of good practices and success stories, i.e. projects that distinguished themselves in terms of policy relevance, communication potential, impact or design.”

The data, interpretations and guidelines will be broadly applicable and instrumental for higher education institutions, entrepreneurs and businesses alike.

You can already find some interesting preliminary project findings from Latvia in this newsletter, but more will soon be published on the project website, so make sure to follow us closely.
