Abstract:Management development programmes (MDPs) have been reported to positively influence various employees’ behaviors. Despite the importance, many research studies do not address the influence of management development programmes. This study examined the influence of management development on innovative behaviour and the role of proactive personality in the relationship. Employees of Government of the Punjab, Education Department who were 114 in number participated in the study. Availability of role models and perceived control were examined as aspects of MD that influence innovative behavior. A significant relationship was found between availability of role models and innovative behaviour. Proactive personality did not moderate the relationship. On the basis of these findings, conclusions were drawn and recommendations for researchers and practitioners in the field of HRD were made.
