Leadership development may be the most important thing any company does. That’s why, every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover leadership development to find the very best leadership development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to posts about the future of the MBA and leadership development learning.

From HBRIdeacast: The Future of MBA Education

“Scott DeRue, the dean of University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, says the old model of business school education is gone. It’s no longer good enough to sequester yourself on campus for two years before heading out into the world of commerce. DeRue discusses how the perceived value of an MBA education is changing in the digital era, and how MBA programs are innovating in response to individual and company demands.”

From Nick Schacht: The Future of Learning

“In today’s world, HR professionals are business leaders with an expertise in Human Resources. Part of this expertise must be in the development of competencies across the full range of organizational functions and skill sets. Using a competency-based framework helps ensure that HR plays a strategic role in preparing the organization for tomorrow. A competency-based framework also serves as a lens to identify, view and direct learning opportunities. This ensures that future training development and purchases meet the current needs and anticipate the future needs of a changing organization. So, what does this mean for the future?”

From Srini Pillay: Brain-Based Learning: Matching LMS Technology to the Way People Learn Best

“Recent research on human psychology and the brain has put the design and development of learning technology at an intriguing crossroads.”

From Emily Manley: Create Learning “Playlists” To Organize and Share Your Learning Efforts

“We’ve all got that one friend who has amazing taste in music. No matter the mood, event or genre, they can put together a playlist that wows the crowd. And thanks to digital services like Spotify and Apple Music, it’s now easier than ever to peruse, consume and share playlists created by everyone from expert curators to your friends. The rise of playlists has not only revolutionized the music industry, it’s changing the way we approach learning now, too.”
