Global Leadership Collaborative
Old economy, new economy. Matrix management, alliances, virtual teams. Innovation, entrepreneurship, venturing, war for talent. Knowledge sharing, global mindset, core values, hyperspeed. Got it? All these issues—and more—are on the HRD professional’s plate and they have never been more needed, valued, or pressured to perform.
Development professionals oversee the expenditure of significant sums for the professional development of others in their organizations, but have traditionally invested very little in their own development. This is a dangerous practice when the acquisition, development, and deployment of human assets has become vitally important to achieving competitiveness. HRD professionals must be at the top of their games so that they can help their companies stay out in front. Doug Ready created ICEDR (the International Consortium for Executive Development Research) to help HRD professionals remain at the top of their game.

“What companies need now is high level research, putting the ball firmly back in the academic’s camp. Companies are looking for the big, breakthrough idea.”
