This much-needed book takes a critical and reflective approach to leadership and management development. The author team draw on their strong practitioner backgrounds to combine a thorough research base with a multitude of cases and examples. The reflective questions and problem-based scenarios that follow these case studies are used to encourage academic, practical and personal development and provide opportunities for formative and summative assessment.

This title takes a broad view of leadership and management development, which encompasses all the activities and processes making up the organization's attempts to create an ongoing supply of appropriate leadership and management capacity, to enable it to achieve its objectives, to sustain and transform itself as necessary.

A truly international range of cases are employed, as well as examples from the not-for-profit and commercial sectors and from organizations of all sizes, to provide a rounded picture of how management and leadership works across all sectors. A full range of pedagogical features are used both in the book and on the Online Resource Centre, to aid students' development. The wide range of academic references incorporates the latest research in the field, providing a platform for students to extend

their learning.

In addition to being suitable for a wide range of courses related to leadership and management development, this book has also been mapped against the latest CIPD elective standards in Leadership and Management Development and against the compulsory module entitled Leading, Managing and Developing People.
