Clark N. Quinn, an expert on corporate learning, proposes a total revamp of the learning and development (L&D) industry. He identifies recent technological and social changes, and blasts the field for ignoring them. Calling for L&D to transform into “Performance & Development” (P&D), Quinn both outlines an idealized model and discusses practical issues in P&D implementation. Though at times wordy and wandering, his message is an alarm clock for the industry, a challenge to awaken and update where necessary, but without undermining learning that works. getAbstract recommends his change guidebook to corporate learning professionals.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the learning and development (L&D) industry needs to change with the times,
- How social and technological changes affect L&D,
- Why the “Performance and Development” (P&D) model would be an improvement, and
- How it works.
