Editor's note
Is management an art or a science? That's the question sparked
by Paul Kearns' article "What's the Point of Leadership
Programmes" this week. Paul argues that leadership development
has traditionally had a cavalier approach to evaluating return
on investment. Put succinctly his point is: if you can't measure
the results, then how will you ever know whether the investment
was worthwhile? However some TrainingZONE members feel that
management is more of an art than a science and therefore a
matter of perception than hard analysis. Have your say on the
evaluation debate.

TrainingZONE will be at the World of Learning Conference and
Exhibition this week. For the latest news from the conference go
