A management job rotation (MJR) program is a planned effort to develop management trainees, supervisors, managers, or executives by placing them, for extended time spans, in new work settings within an organization. Surprisingly little research has been conducted on MJR, even though research conducted by the American Society for Training and Development with the U. S. Department of Labor indicates that instruction for experienced middle managers tends to gravitate away from formal in–house instruction to focus on mentoring, job rotation, and outside seminars. This article reviews what is known about MJR and summarizes results of a recent exploratory survey of training and development professionals about MJR practices in their organizations.
