Training and Development Trends
There is no doubt that the old training and development era of standup or classroom training is quickly leaving. Thus, the new learning and performance era that encompasses coaching and guiding learners is replacing it. Learning theory is moving to the next level.
Let’s take a look at learning strategies and methods. Using technology availability and shifts, delivery systems, and the business environment, in general, are driving the evolution toward blended (classroom and technology-based learning) at a fast pace.
Learning and Performance professionals and organizations that fail to accept and embrace this metamorphosis will certainly regret it later as they lose professional competence and suffer competitively.
