Innovation in digital technology is changing the world as we know it.
But how is it changing executive and leadership development? How are companies using the advantages of digital to accelerate the development of their future leaders? And for those eager to do more, what guidelines are there for doing it well?
These are the questions our research set out to answer.
What we learned confirmed our impression that only a small number of companies are leveraging the full potential digital offers. There are good reasons for this. Like the challenges we help leaders solve, using digital technology to improve leadership development is also complex, uncertain and risky. It is hard to understand.
Combining real world insights from heads of leadership development and a distillation of ‘ideas that work’, this report offers practical steps for accelerating the use of digital technology in executive and leadership development.
The purpose of our research was to do discover, clarify and then share what we learned about the role of digital technology in leadership development.
PHASE 1: DISCOVER – We held interviews with heads of leadership and executive development at global companies to find out how they were using, and planning to use, digital technology.
PHASE 2: CLARIFY – We clarified our insights from those interviews and combined it with desk research to identify and explain how digital technology can improve the impact of leadership development.
PHASE 3: CONCLUDE AND SHARE – We drew conclusions and we are delighted to share them in this report as practical guidelines for our clients to use in developing future leaders for their companies.
Our findings are presented in the report (DOWNLOADABLE HERE) under each of these headings.
In this webinar Tim Coburn shares findings from Accelerance’s research interviews, and their own further research. Tim also presents Accelerance’s “Seven Point Plan for Improvement”, i.e. seven ways that digital technology improves the quality and effectiveness of the learning leaders want, and companies need.
