    India has been in centre stage of developing economies and commends high respect in knowledge based industries India has opened it economy to international competition and Indian products now compete with best products of the world. Indian promoters have realized that human resource is basic for future success. Dynamic managements have started training their executives to best practices with view to improve system efficiencies. Executive Development Programs are backbone of such training and skill improvement. Small and Medium enterprises have also adopted Executive Development Programs to suit their requirement. We decided that an attempt should be made to examine how effective and useful these Executive Development Programs are, for participants in three time frames, one before enrollment, second on completion and third –one month after completion of program. Sample of 30 was selected comprising of 25 male executives and 5 female executives. All participants were at least 18 years of age with at least 3 years of experience. Executives were employed in different activities largely falling in production, marketing administration and BPO services Executives belonged to Vapi, Navsari, Vadodara and Ahmedabad. It was observed that executive perception on usefulness of Executive Development Program do show non-significant relationship with change in their perception of usefulness before enrollment, immediately after completion and one month after end of the program.
