Outdoor management development: use and evaluation
Reviews the use of and evaluations of OMD by a number of large employers and suggests a framework for the evaluation of outdoor management development (OMD). In a questionnaire survey of large organizations it was found that current users of OMD feel that it is an effective part of their management development programmes and that these firm beliefs in the benefits for personal, team and leadership development are used as justification to continue to use the outdoors as a medium for enhancing their management development programmes. What was not clear was how such conclusions were arrived at other than through anecdote and intuition. Argues that more detailed systematic research using a range of techniques is required in order to investigate the claims of current users and the views of non-users.
