Learning & Development is the capability building arm of the organization. Today, even as investment in learning is increasing across the economy, L&D approaches are in need to better demonstrate their efficience and effectiveness. It seems like a paradox that technology, that has been providing new learning tools and approaches for the past 20 years, could be hurting the sound management of L&D departments. Some questions help identify the key issues in this area:
Do we have a consistent L&D strategy, aligned with the key talent segments and focused on capability building?
Do we invest in L&D approaches based on expected returns of this human capital development?
Have we differentiated our L&D roles across the organization (learning strategy, learning design specialists, learning program brokers, Trusted Talent Advisors)?
Are we conveniently leveraging our Learning systems? Are these systems aligned with the other Talent Management systems?
How does learning contribute to the overall Employee Experience?
