The core research question is whether there are differences between management development (MD) activities for a sample of private sector organisations in New Zealand (NZ) on a comparative basis for 2007 and 2011 as it is perceived in practice by line managers (LMs). The underlying question is what, if any, impact the global financial crisis (GFC) might have had on MD practices in NZ. This paper reports on longitudinal data at a national level which examines existing practice based on the collection of the 2011 data and subsequent comparative analysis with 2007 data
