Abstract : The current report represents one aspect of the continuing effort by the Defense Systems Management College to improve its management development programs. This research project included an examination of the current state-of-the-art of management development in organizations in the United States, identification of organizational factors important for implementation of effective management development programs, development of guidelines for use in planning and implementing a state-of-the-art program, and an examination of the implications of these findings for program development at DSMC. The research suggests that two basic approaches to management development could be identified, a management education approach and a management development systems approach.
