The Impact of Leadership Development Programs

Categorized Under: Organizational Learning + Performance, Research + Evaluation



ICF International conducted a study to discern what techniques are best used to measure leadership development programs, how effective these techniques are, and how viable these techniques may be in organizations that do not currently use them.

The need to measure the impact of development programs, and leadership development programs in particular, is twofold:

  1. Measurement enables learning and development practitioners to justify the expenditures associated with the program.

  2. Learning and development practitioners must create a measurement system that can provide the necessary data to ensure continuous improvement of the program.

Measuring the results of any development program is the single most important way to aid in the improvement and effectiveness of the programs themselves.
