The Trends in Executive Development report has been the leading compilation of research for organizations across the globe to benchmark their executive and high-potential development practices.

Today, after more than 30 years of research and reports, it has become a trusted resource and industry benchmark created for talent and leadership development professionals as well as executives who believe in developing their organization’s talent in a way that they become a competitive advantage.

This year, the study is based on the direct input of those who oversee the development of the organization’s leaders for 270 medium and large organizations as well as the insights and analysis of executive development experts and executives. Our team of contributors has decades of combined expertise across an array of business landscapes.

The 2019 survey results identify both current and future trends impacting the executive development industry, some of which have made the list in years past, while others have come to the forefront in this year’s research. The top 5 current factors influencing executive development, as identified by the organizations surveyed, include:

  1. changing business strategies,
  2. digital transformation,
  3. economic conditions,
  4. changing customer requirements, and
  5. the need for increased innovation.

In addition, the top 5 future trends include a focus on business ethics and integrity, innovation, cognitive readiness, community outreach, and competitive positioning.  More importantly, a collective look at the trends points toward an overall need pause and review what is working and what isn’t and make the appropriate adjustments. The Report is the product of a collaborative partnership between Executive Development Associates, Inc. (EDA) and BTS.

Here’s what Bonnie Hagemann, CEO, Executive Development Associates (EDA) has to say:

“If we keep adding and adding, we are going to wear out our teams.  I believe we are doing a lot of things that no longer make sense but we either don’t take the time to evaluate what still has impact or we already know what we need to stop and we are resisting for one reason or another.”
