At a large public university in the U.S., managers within the Division of Information Technology (IT) were often promoted to managerial positions due to their excellence as individual contributors. Many of them, however, have not received any management education or training and are not prepared to take on supervisor roles. To support these managers to perform effectively and efficiently in their positions, an in-house leadership and management training program was established within the Division of IT. This in-house training program aims to meet the organization’s leadership and management needs by identifying and preparing capable individuals through planned professional development.
In this presentation, the presenter will introduce the organizational benefits of providing a leadership and management training program as well as factors that influence the decision of establishing an in-house training program versus using external vendors. Major program design processes used to create the in-house leadership and management training program, including determining the program purpose, conducting needs assessment, creating program goals and objectives, and establishing curriculum will be discussed. One training module will be demonstrated to show the various learning activities used in the hybrid training approach, which includes both online and face-to-face delivery. Feedback from a pilot study using one unit within the Division of IT will be shared. The presenter will also discuss plans for improvement and approaches for scaling-up the program to the whole Division of IT.
