Part 4 – Learning & Development Series
What happens when you make learning a strategic investment in your people? You “move the dial” on individual and organizational agility and, thus, the performance of the business.
In our series demonstrating why learning and development (L&D) is critical to an organization’s success, we offered points of view about:
- L&D’s “War to Develop Talent” to support organizational growth and change initiatives
- Leadership’s “Make or Break” role in L&D
- “Taking People with You” to develop a readied and enabled workforce
Discover more about the Learning Function itself and its true need to:
- Establish an active partnership with business operations to understand changing business and related workforce L&D needs
- Validate the results-driven connection between L&D investments and desired business outcomes
- Touch the “minds and hearts” of the workforce to reinforce commitment to individual and collective organizational improvements
