Abstract
The purpose of the study was to analyze how ‘leadership strategists’ in Skåne's business community perceived the effects of leadership training. A directed content analysis was adopted. 16 people (from 15 companies) in various leadership positions with authority to influence the process of contracting for leadership training were interviewed. The results of this study shows that the interviewees had the perception that leadership training predominantly leads to positive reactions and learning among participants. Many of the interviewees had vague beliefs that the efforts resulted in positive outcomes for the organisation, but they lacked the means to track such effects. With the help of a self-designed theoretical integrative model, the... (More)

With the help of a self-designed theoretical integrative model, the study highlights that different types of effects are difficult both to discover and achieve. The model explains the difficulty for leaders to transfer learning. Bridging the gap between knowledge and action seems to be a key challenge in optimizing future leadership training. (Less)

Studiens syfte var att analysera hur ledarskapsstrateger i Skånes näringsliv uppfattade effekterna av genomförda ledarskapsutbildningar. En riktad innehållsanalys användes. 16 personer (på 15 företag) i olika ledande positioner med inflytande över beställningsprocessen av ledarskapsutbildningar intervjuades. Studiens resultat visar att intervjupersonerna hade uppfattningen att ledarskapsutbildningar övervägande leder till positiva reaktioner och lärande hos deltagare. Många hade också en vag föreställning om att insatserna gav positiva resultat för organisationen, men saknar medel för att spåra sådana effekter. Med hjälp av en egenkonstruerad teoretisk integrativ modell belyser studien att olika sorters effekter är olika svåra att både... (More)

Med hjälp av en egenkonstruerad teoretisk integrativ modell belyser studien att olika sorters effekter är olika svåra att både upptäcka och uppnå. Modellen förklarar också ledares svårigheter att omsätta lärdomar. Att överbrygga gapet mellan kunskap och handling tycks vara en central utmaning för att optimera framtida ledarskapsutbildningar.
