Asia-Pacific represents the major source of growth within the local market and internationally for many corporations over the next 10 years. The growth opportunities are often in locations where there is currently a limited supply of leadership capability, so it has been necessary for organizations, at least initially, to import leadership rather than to source locally. But it is the development of local leadership competence, in terms of quantity and quality, that will ensure the achievement of future growth targets over the long term.
This report is based on The Conference Board’s Working Group on Leadership Development in Asia-Pacific, a survey of 55 organizations, and presentations and discussions from The 2005 Asia-Pacific Leadership Development Conference held in Singapore in June 2005.
