Towards a Road to Success: The Development of the Integrated Process Model

Part of the Understanding Complex Systems book series (UCS)


Consistent with the objective of any training program, method, tool or initiative, i.e., to produce successful decision-makers, in this chapter we attempt to develop an integrated process model that accounts for key factors responsible for successful delivery of ILE-based training sessions.
