dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to compare and contrast current management development delivery systems in the public sector with the private sector. Data was gathered through on-site interviews with five private and five public sector organizations. The organizations were selected for the study with the help of expert panels. Panel members also assisted in refining the structured interview guide used to collect data.Data obtained by the interviews were analyzed using a binomial test for differences in proportion to determine significant differences between responses of the public sector and the private sector interviewees. Open ended questions were compared and reported in narrative form.Data collected support the following conclusions:1. The importance of involving individual participants in planning for management development programs has been shown.2. A number of practices endorsed by respondents and identified in the data may serve as components of a model for program implementation.3. The literature supports the need to correlate management development activitites to events-based, on-the-job activities.4. A weakness appears to exist in current management development programs in regard to the lack of use of personal recognition as an incentive.5. The literature cites the need to increase funds for future programming needs.6. Changes in salary/wage policies may need to occur.7. Ambiguous goals are a reason for the failure of many management development programs.8. Evaluation techniques are utilized to assess individual program offerings rather than to measure improvement in on-the-job performance.9. Raise in income is preferred as an incentive in the public sector.10. Promotion is preferred as an incentive in the private sector.11. Development programs are hindered by a perceived lack of available time. en_US
