I really enjoyed the debate on Twitter this morning in the #ldinsight chat (runs every Friday 8am-9am), though the question did spark quite a lot of strong reactions from people. That is not a bad thing is it? The question was:
“What business skills are we missing in L&D and what can we do about this?”
Lots of great points made and you can follow them up in this storify, but I wanted to home in on just something that popped into my head as I was exchanging thoughts with Andrew Jacobs. He said “Feels like the business has the skills and L&D could learn from it.”
- We share what tools we have to use, the business see how they might apply
- The business tells us what the key issues are, we share with them others experience learnt from conferences, research etc
- The business tells us their plans, we look to the most creative and cost effective ways of getting there
- We share all the different ways we can improve performance through learning, they tell us what needs improving
My first ever #WOL, so I would love to hear what you are thinking about this…..
