Executive Development Programmes - Requirements and Success Factors
AbstractThe article deals with the requirements placed on Executive Development Programmes (EDPs) and their success factors. Executives belong to the top and upper management of companies who see the organization as a unit and not the individual function areas in the foreground. EDPs seek qualification that goes beyond the skills of their current activities, they offer practical state-of-the-art training to acquire new techniques, and they benefit from the experience of other participants. Further education institutions have to satisfy the demand for teaching technical, conceptual and social skills in compliance with the requirements of the learning process and type of content. Selection criteria for an alternative training or a specific school are, in general, content, target group and existing own resources. Using a practice-induced model, interdependent success factors of EDPs were identified such as provider quality, experiential learning and internationality, applied approach and environmental conditions.
