In this overview of management and leadership development (MLD), the authors review the current state of MLD practices, then introduce readers to competing theories of MLD and offer a critical perspective on them. Throughout the book, ideas are illustrated by international case studies and vignettes that evoke the perceptions and interests of a wide range of stakeholders in the management development process. The book's ten chapters are designed to allow students to follow the material over a typical ten-week semester, and chapter objectives and summaries are included. The book is written for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in human resources management, leadership development, and organizational behavior. Mabey teaches human resource management at Birmingham University Business School, UK. Finch-Lees is a doctoral researcher at Birkbeck College, University of London.
