Press release from: AMA Enterprise

ARLINGTON, VA – July 21, 2011 – Government organizations are pursuing global leadership development programs, with significant focus on managing change as a priority competency, according to a recent study conducted by the American Management Association (AMA) in collaboration with the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) and Training magazine.

Lagging slightly behind their corporate counterparts, 22.3% of government respondents report their organization has a global leadership program in place, compared to 31.6% of the corporate respondents. “Globalization is a significant influence on leadership development today,” said Sandi Edwards, Senior Vice President for AMA Enterprise. “We live in a global economy, and our government leaders more frequently are required to interact with other governments and communities around the world. This means that up-and-coming leaders require a broader skill set than in the past.”

When asked to select the competency that represents the most central focus of their global leadership development program, 38.5% chose managing change. The second most central focus was critical thinking/problem solving, at 15.4%. Many respondents (47.8%) felt their leadership development program is largely successful, with some areas that could be improved. Still, the leadership development programs garner less than 5% of the budget in 35% of the respondents’ organizations.

Other findings among the government respondents:

• Managing change, critical thinking/problem solving, and the ability to influence and build coalitions are the most widely taught competencies.
• Certain competencies, such as managerial agility, creativity, and general business acumen, have proved more difficult for executives to master.
