The L&D challenge for 2014: Balancing business priorities and individual needs

by | Apr 3, 2014 | Articles

In this webinar, Laura Overton discusses one of the modern day challenges of today’s L&D department – how to balance the needs of business and individuals.

For the past ten years, Towards Maturity research has focused on the behaviours of successful learning organisations. Alignment to business priorities has always a critical component to success, but the careful attention to the requirements of individual staff members is becoming increasingly pressing.

This session looks at ten tips to get the balance right so that L&D can engage more learners AND deliver against the bottom line.

This webinar was conducted in conjunction with Towards Maturity’s founding Ambassador-  Corporate Learning Consortium on the 28th of March 2014. The full recording can be found on this link. We’d recommend that you share this at your next L&D team meeting! The session draws on findings from the 2013-14 Towards Maturity Benchmark Study – the New Learning Agenda, which can be downloaded for free at www.towardsmaturity.org/2013benchmark.

In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
