It’s hard to think of an important aspect of management more neglected than people development. Yet for a variety of reasons, this valuable activity is often ignored or handled as a bureaucratic exercise or an afterthought. Due to this, organizations pay a high price in terms of the loss of talented people.

In one of the people development program conducted at a textile machine manufacturing industry, involved a management conclave with the objective to build a high performance leadership team, improve team building, co-operation and refining the team vision and mission with the intent to achieve the goals.

One final thought: People Development planning doesn’t have to be elaborate or costly. If it’s done well, the payoff can be substantial in terms of long-term loyalty. If it’s not, the costs can be substantial in terms of long-term talent.
