Ashridge Management Index 2008: Meeting the Challenges of the 21st Century

Having a high quality management team and a motivated workforce is vital for a business to succeed and is what often differentiates a good employer from a mediocre or poor employer. The purpose of this year’s Ashridge Management Index was to examine the current business environment and to better understand some of the key challenges and opportunities which exist for managers. The research was conducted in autumn 2007 and a questionnaire was distributed. In total 839 responses were received. The majority of respondents are senior and middle managers. Just over half are working in the UK, a smaller number are elsewhere in Europe (23%) or working internationally (26%).
