In a recent leadership development (LD) impact evaluation study of a 10 year long program that had significant business impact, we identified 14 best practice principles. In our study we conducted external benchmarking by using a comparative analysis of LD best practice currently in use by industry globally. These 14 best practice principles are interrelated and for convenience are grouped below in three program phases. CEO’s commitment and senior management participation in the program is essential to the program design and to clearly communicate with, and support, participants on how to tackle the organisation’s strategic challenges.
The online activity at the end of the program includes the completion of selected modules and reinforces participants’ learnings during the program. Conducting an impact evaluation is the most neglected aspect of a leadership development program, yet it is one of the most critical. Best practice organisations are committed to evaluating the effectiveness of their LD efforts because they recognise that conducting evaluations is imperative.

The 14 general principles outlined here are formal processes and practices currently in use by industry in designing, delivering and evaluating LD best practice programs. As a leadership and organisational development practitioner, you will benefit by assessing your organisation’s current practices against the LD best practices presented here.

The Kentucky Department of Education, in partnership with KECSAC, has identified best practice strategies for alternative education in an effort to provide emerging alternative programs with a road map for improving student outcomes, both academic and social.
We also analysed primary data (interviews, direct observations and an online survey), and secondary data (documentary analysis of archival records and participant evaluations).

The one-to-one follow-up discussion with their immediate boss closes the loop begun with the initial discussion completed during the preparation process (best practice #7). While 86% of organisations evaluate at the level of participants’ reactions (satisfaction) using the popular ‘happy sheets’, only11% evaluate performance at organisational level, and only 3% assess return on investment (ROI) or return on expectations (ROE). In doing so, your organisation will also benefit by ensuring that your LD initiatives have a significant impact on the business and that your leadership pipeline is ready and able to execute the strategies critical for the long term success of your firm. Schools and programs may also continue applying for recognition of their best practice strategies by submitting applications on that same site.
