The value of management and leadership qualifications
02 July 2012
Earlier this year CMI published a major piece of research on the business benefits of management and leadership development. It showed that organisational performance and management abilities are clearly correlated, with effective management development linked to a 23 per cent variance in organisational performance (McBain et al 2012). The research revealed that qualifications, in particular, hit a ‘sweet spot’, with managers rating business school and professional body qualifications as the most effective forms of MLD.
This project builds on these findings to explore and evaluate the impact of management and leadership qualifications (MLQs) on UK managers and employers.
