Industry-specific leadership development: Do you do it?


I am writing a proposal for a re-design of our healthcare executive programme, which each year sees 30 high potentials experience 2 modules on healthcare issues/challenges/developments around the world, looking internally and externally. I'd like to find out if other organisations invest in industry-specific development such as this. 

One Response

  1. It does happen in other industries


    I have worked for British Steel and DHL and both companies ran industry specific development programmes for their high pots.

    In British Steel’s case they had arrangements with steel companies from other countries whereby managers would go for a few weeks at a time to ‘see’ how the other company ran its rolling mill or strip plant etc.

    For DHL the focus was on internal best practice sharing. Thus the warehousing high pots would spend time understanding air, sea and land freight issues and vice versa. The programme ran as four 1 week long classroom sessions over 12 months with mixed groups being given work related projects to complete and present back on inbetween each classroom session.

    Not sure if this answers your question
