Summary of Transforming Training
A Guide to Creating a Flexible Learning Environment: The Rise of the Learning Architects
You may think you're a trainer, but you're really a "learning architect," responsible for aligning education and strategy.
This exhaustively detailed book reports on how to create a successful workplace learning program, and explains the challenges corporate trainers face. It provides a step-by-step plan to develop a learning environment flexible enough to meet the ever-changing needs of the company and the individuals within it. Some U.S. readers may need to familiarize themselves with U.K. abbreviations they may not have seen before, such as NVQ (National Vocational Qualifications) and CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development). A tendency toward dense jargon is outweighed by the book's numerous assets – a wide compilation of best practices, useful checklists, illustrative case histories, insightful suggestions and proven recommendations. getAbstract considers this book a valuable guide for anyone charged with planning, setting up and implementing a corporate training or learning program.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to establish a "learning function" within your company;
- What a "learning strategy" is and why it is important;
- How to organize and deliver corporate training; and
- What primary issues concern corporate educators today.
