Why IMD

Organisations face numerous critical pressures, including a short supply of leaders, the need to develop and engage employees, and demands for growth in turnover and profitability; finding and keeping talent is no longer a Human Resources challenge but a strategic business priority.

Challenged by the growing representation of a younger generation and the rise of the independent worker, companies are required to rethink their approach to managing talent and take steps to prioritise the “individual.” They must provide a new mechanism for learning, one that can both adapt to the needs of a changing workforce and can align closely with organisational objectives.

Most companies must adjust their learning strategies, therefore, to meet the demands of today’s workforce; traditional models of learning are only partly able to bridge the gap between employer and employee or to improve engagement and performance. By aligning learning strategies with corporate objectives and leveraging innovative technology, organisations can significantly improve their learning capacities.

IMD believes in planning for learning as an ongoing campaign, linking organisational performance to individual development goals as a means of ensuring business success.

Through the provision of learning experiences which are engaging, relevant and rewarding, IMD promotes demonstrable personal and business growth, for individuals as they seek personal and career progression, and for corporate clients wishing to induct, train and develop staff members.

IMD delivers real customer value by enabling the improvement of business performance, from operational efficiency and management effectiveness to professional development and compliance.

We develop the capabilities of people in areas that are critical to their organisations’ future success such as strategy, innovation, leadership and change management.

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.”
