From the Back Cover:

Next Generation Management Development contains an innovative, comprehensive, and fully integrated management development program. Its concepts, models, tools, and other materials have been used successfully to train managers, leaders, and MD/OD personnel for organizations such as IBM, AT&T, Kraft, Baxter Labs, Sears, Caterpiller, and the U.S. Navy, Army, and Air Force to name a few. The "next generation training program" is designed to be a vehicle for enabling managers or leaders to participate more effectively in their organization's OD processes.

Next Generation Management Development is also a professional "how-to" book for management trainers, training program developers, HRD and OD managers, and OD consultants.

Step-by-step, this important resource explains and demonstrates by example how to do the following:

  • Design a management development program that integrates managerial and supervisory development practices with OD consulting practices
  • Implement a fully integrated MD/OD program
  • Describe how many major management concepts, processes, models, and practices are interrelated and can be used in conjunction with each other more effectively than ever before
  • Synthesize and reconcile "One Best Style Theories" with "Contingency or Situational Theories"

The guide's training modules and many fresh and innovative instructional exhibits—such as The Managerial Target and the Unified Practice of Management model—are designed to help students and seminar participants gain deeper insight into more effective management and management development. The accompanying CD-ROM contains many customizable OD consultant and facilitator tools as well as additional chapter material.
