Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, one of the top analyst firms in the world (covering IT, Digital, Financial Services, HR, and other key areas) has just named Development Dimensions International (DDI) as the top leadership development provider.
Kennedy analysed a number of world leading companies in this field, with DDI coming out on top in the leadership development space against a series of measures. DDI is one of the world’s largest providers of leadership development services with an unparalleled capacity to deliver integrated, customised, and globally consistent programmes. This is partly because DDI continues to challenge itself to deepen its understanding of leadership with a rigorous, scientific approach to research. Their Centre for Applied Behavioural Research conducts global research independently and also with other leading thought leaders.
Needless to say Executive Recruitment and Organisational Development experts Sheffield (New Zealand exclusive licensee for DDI) are delighted with the results. Executive Director Christien Winter, said that this recognition is no surprise at all. "Having used DDI content for leadership development initiatives over many years for both large and small client organisations, we know first-hand how effective and practical their content is. The in-workshop environment is applied, with high levels of discussion, skill application, coaching and feedback, and post workshop on the job development accelerators cementing learning uptake."
DDI has remained on top due to their breadth and depth of their capabilities as well as their Momentum (an indicator which looks at a number of factors including reputation, changes to business models/services, market share etc). DDI balances it’s consulting, technology, and content solution capabilities in a blended service offering that can be targeted to all levels of leadership and customised to business cultures.
