Lead4Skills Project Outcomes: The Future of Management Development
Publication source:
The Lead4Skills research partnership lead by CEEMAN is proud to present the project outcomes including The Cross Country Report on Management Development Needs, Guidelines for Management and Leadership Skills Development and a Teaching Case Study Collection. All materials are openly available for use.

The overall aim of the Lead4Skills project was to provide Higher Education Institutions with a comprehensive set of insights, guidelines and materials that would help develop more relevant and innovative management education offerings. Extensive international research was conducted with relevant stakeholders which enabled us to base materials and guidelines on the real needs of businesses and economies, as only outputs based on real management development needs may lead to reduction of management skills mismatch.

After conducting over 100 interviews with company representatives and several successful educational seminars CEEMAN and Lead4Skills partners are happy to provide you with several important outputs, are openly available for you to use.

The Cross Country Report on Management Development Needs provides individual country reports from all participating countries, several vase studies which give further insights into specific challenges and an overview chapter on common issues and challenges that business and management development environments are facing.

Guidelines for Management and Leadership Skills Development present a summary of the key issues identified during the cross-country report preparatio

n, as well as specific guidelines including Guidelines for curriculum development, Guidelines for teaching/learning materials development, and Guidelines for teaching methods, tools and techniques development. These chapters will be most useful for faculty members and decision-makers of management development institutions, helping them introduce more relevant and innovative approaches to education with a better balance between academic rigor and development of practical skills. We also provide insights from educational seminars that we have organised.

Teaching Case Study Collection provides a wide selection of class tested teaching case studies along with teaching notes. You are free to use them in your teaching, but we advise to also take a look at insights from Teaching and Writing Case Studies Seminar which you can find in the Guidelines publication.
