Keep up with change and get results with a proven approach to learning and development leadership

Adapt to rapid change with strategic leadership: In an increasingly global, technologically led world, learning and development needs to keep up with change. Leaders must possess strategic capabilities to ensure their training programs stay relevant and have concrete, measurable impact. Learning and Development: Six Factors for Strategic Business Leadership will show you that the need for strategic leadership is a constant in the face of changing technologies and methodologies.

Real business results: Approaches to learning and development must impact the corporate bottom line or risk becoming obsolete. Existing measurement models for evaluating training impact, such as the Kirkpatrick Levels, are largely helpful only within the learning department. This book will equip you with the ability to align to organizational needs and show business results.

Consistent and proven approach to training evaluation: Despite the growing expectations of learning and development, no one has popularized a repeatable approach to designing, deploying, and evaluating training that impacts the corporate bottom line. Learning and Development offers just that.

  • Set a strategic direction for their organizations
  • Implement a regular reporting and communication plan
  • Build a supportive base of stakeholders while navigating company politics
  • Use data and evaluation to make strategic decisions with impactful results

The pace of change is relentless. Run a thriving, results-driven learning and development organization with this practical guide to leadership strategy. Top three benefits:
