A crisis of confidence in L&D - 85% of line managers identify employee development as critical to achieving business outcomes, but fewer than one in four rate the L&D function as critical to achieving business results.
Key shifts in the world of work - the frequency of organisational change, the rise in knowledge workers and the collaboration now required to get work done, means that L&D needs to take an organisation wide view of employee development:
It requires a focus on building network performance capability, not just individual task capability.
It needs to embed learning within day-to-day work to drive ongoing performance improvement.
It must challenge and shape learning demand and the business understanding of performance.
In this new world we need L&D business partners across our organisations who have the skills and confidence to deliver against this challenging agenda.
Establish a common understanding, approach and language for business partnering.
Provide an opportunity to experience and practise business partnering to build confidence and competence.
To provide networking opportunities with like-minded L&D professionals.
