The challenge of management development in multinational companies is not only the program design itself, to design a diversified and comprehensive program, but also how to implement the program worldwide consistently and efficiently. Many multinational companies face the dilemma of centralization or decentralization because both have strengths and weakness and the debates on which approach is better is never ending. Instead of using the single one approach for the whole program, companies can review the process, from needs collection, design and development to implementation and evaluation, to determine the right approach for each. It means to use the combination of centralization and decentralization to capture the strengths of both.
