Nine out of ten companies report that executive learning and development (L&D) is among the primary drivers of long-term organisational success. However, only two out of ten respondents are satisfied with the state of executive L&D in their own organisation. The most important reason is that the very top of organisations is insufficiently committed to driving executive L&D. The second edition of the St. Gallen Executive Education Report (SEER) examines how firms may simultaneously develop firm-wide strategic thinking, organisational capabilities, and individual top managers.
Regarding the report, IEDP said:
“The standout figure from the survey is that 93% of respondents have put executive leadership development as their first or second priority for their organization in terms of its future success. Even given the weighting of HR and L&D professionals, who clearly have a greater focus on this than other senior executives, this is a startling figure.”
