The ISB Approach

Our dedicated programme design team studies extant challenges across sectors and functions, and maps learning outcomes to the latest findings in management and development research. Our programmes are thus the most relevant to participants and their organisations in terms of issues addressed, ideas provided, and pedagogy delivered. 


Approach to Training Design

ISB Executive Education has an intensively tested and carefully crafted process to design and deliver mid-career training programmes (MCTPs) to government officials. A schematic diagram of this approach is offered below.
