Training on The Rise for 2007

Nearly half of U.S. employers plans to spend more time and money on supervisory and executive-level development next year, according to a survey of more than 2,046 senior HR executives by Novations Group, a global consulting organization based in Boston.

Their findings?

  • Leadership/executive development and supervisory/management skills ranked first and second among 11 categories of training.
Other categories of training included:

  • Sales/customer service
  • Technical training
  • Interpersonal/teamwork
  • Communications
  • Diversity/inclusion
  • IT skills/systems
  • Project management
  • Business practices
  • Basic skills

BOTTOMLINE: Where among all of these categories of training is the most fundamental core competency of business - strategy execution? Perhaps that is why 90% of strategies are not well executed??
