Youve definitely gotten your feet wet during your short time as the VP of Training & Development at Kareco. The CEO of the organization has taken notice, and has a new request for you. Several of the top level executives will be retiring over the next few years. He has asked you to hold a meeting with the Board of Directors to discuss preliminary ideas for an executive development program for the organization.
1. Describe what questions you would ask of the CEO and Board of Directors to better understand what will be required of the new program.
Since you are a relatively new employee, it is acceptable to ask even basic questions about the nature of the organization, as long as they will help you create a better development program.
2. Describe what high level recommendations you would make to the Board.
