The mission of the Management Development Forum (MDF) is to report on new insights and approaches in the fields of management learning and organizational development relevant to managers. It is our aim to stimulate innovative thinking, share new developments and ideas, and report on new technologies and intervention programs. We serve as a pool for new theory and practical knowledge that will support management and human resource professionals seeking to enhance management training, education and development in their organizations.
MDF is an initiative of the FORUM Management Education Program at Empire State College, State University of New York, and is published twice yearly. This publication is distributed to human resource professionals, trainers, consultants and professors worldwide engaged in management development and education.
We welcome papers especially on the subjects of management and executive education; change and development; self-directed learning; evaluation of performance for recruiting, staffing and training; measuring and improving the human resource function; team-based design and compensation; training and leadership development; performance management and feedback systems; designing and implementing effective succession planning and management development.
