Abstract: Over the past 20 years, China and India have emerged as the fastest growing economies in the world. In this context, the authors review, examine, and list the factors that have contributed to the emergence of China and India (referred to as Chindia). The authors compare the antecedents, characteristics, and consequences of their emergence in the global market. This article provides insights for the researchers and multinational enterprises from rest of the world to carry out studies on country analysis as well as foreign market entry modes. Besides, we posit theoretical and testable propositions for future research.

Abstract: There is evidence linking a variety of leadership development practices (LDPs) with individual-level leader outcomes. However, both theoretical and empirical work relating bundles of multiple LDPs and organizational performance is lacking in the literature. To address this gap, we proposed and tested a model examining the influence of two LDP bundles on organizational performance, with human capital and social capital as mediators. Differentiation LDPs are aimed primarily at building intrapersonal knowledge, skills, and abilities of leaders, while integration LDPs help build their interpersonal knowledge, skills, and abilities. Utilizing a sample of 223 organizations in a growing economy (India), we found that differentiation LDPs were positively associated with human capital, while integration LDPs positively influenced social capital. Further, human capital mediated the relationship between differentiation LDPs and sales growth. Our study highlights the economic impact of investing in leadership development and the mechanisms underlying the relationship between LDPs and organizational performance.

Abstract: In rapidly growing Asian economies, the need to recruit and train additional leadership talent is particularly problematic, as the demand for talent continues to outstrip available indigenous human capital. Yet most leadership development research to date has focused on US samples. The current study extends our knowledge about how managers develop as leaders by analyzing and comparing qualitative data on key developmental events and lessons from senior executives in China and India, and including a comparison to similar recent US data.

Abstract: The authors describe the development of and build validity evidence for the Developmental Challenge Profile (DCP), an instrument for assessing the developmental components of managerial jobs. Factor analysis of responses from 692 managers resulted in the creation of 15 DCP scales. Assessments of internal consistency, confirmation of the factor structure, and test-retest reliability provided further psychometric support for the scales. The existence of expected relationships between the scales and reports of on-the-job learning, job transitions, objective features of the jobs, and psychological states of the job incumbents provided validity evidence and supported use of these scales in management development research and applications
