The best training for any executive emphasizes experimentation, as up to 70% of our learning is through experience. Coaching is the second most influential methodology (20%) with traditional classroom teaching in the form of lectures, case studies and conferences providing the remaining 10%.
We replicate this model in the learning methodologies of our management programs, dedicating the majority of our programs to experiential methodologies (active learning projects, simulators, role-playing,...) followed by leadership development and executive coaching programs, and lastly, lectures and similar activities.
Today's much reduced economic cycles and market turbulences mean that case studies are no longer central to management training methodology. They are gradually being replaced by the other methods listed above.
