Investigating the Influence of a Leadership Development Programme

Roderick Walker

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


The article outlines the approach taken in an ongoing PhD study, investigating organisational influences of a diploma programme in leadership offered to employees within the Danish public sector. The intention is to consider the implications of wider societal conditions and organisational contexts, rather than solely focusing on events taking place on-site in the development programme. By undertaking a multisited ethnography and adopting a case study approach, individual trajectories of participation through the programme become traceable, training focus onindividual leaders’ iterative movement between the organisational and educational practices, and the manner in which they translate between these contexts.
