Methodology: Computerworld's Executive Education Survey was conducted July 25 through Aug. 3. Our survey was administered online to directors, vice presidents and CIOs in organizations across the U.S. Our survey asked which programs IT executives sent their staff to, what their criteria were for selecting programs, how they measured the effectiveness of a program and which programs were most valuable. A total of 410 IT managers responded to the survey. The organizations surveyed had an average of 8,832 employees.
