Abstract

Having shaken off the formal mantles of their British forebears, Australians and New Zealanders are eagerly embracing the latest management development (MD) approaches, adopting and adapting North American and European methods. Recent government reports highlight the need for both basic and advanced MD, increasing the receptivity of the business community for fresh, imported MD programs. Successful localisation of overseas offerings depends on an awareness of subtle differences between the two countries as well as between them and other English-speaking regions. In addition to anecdotal advice for the flying MD consultant, we provide an environmental scan, focusing on cultural distinctions and recent economic developments affecting demand for, and practices in, MD in Australia and New Zealand. Our goal is to maximise your success in prospecting, designing, and conducting MD programs in our countries.
