Ashridge Centre for Research in Executive Development
The Ashridge Centre for Research in Executive Development (CRED) aims to improve the practice of leadership development by researching the processes involved in all aspects of adult learning.
The Centre for Research in Executive Development (CRED) is committed to enhancing and maximising the effectiveness of leadership development. Our work explores the cognitive, behavioural and neurological processes involved in adult learning. We also carry out research into the individual and group experience of the classroom, the transferability of learning to the workplace, and the development of an organisational culture that supports learning.
CRED is a multi-disciplinary research centre that focuses on processes important to learning. Numerous faculty and Associates are affiliated with the Centre in addition to the core Research team staff.
We work in collaboration with other Ashridge research centres and a range of clients and organisations.
Research from CRED is published in practitioner and peer reviewed articles and in the press. It also feeds directly into programme design, the classroom experience, and our consulting practice. This ensures that all programme participants, students and Learning and Development clients benefit from the latest Ashridge research.
