Strategy and Training

Book Description

Social learning, using technologies such as Twitter and video blogs, is revolutionizing the way organizational training is undertaken. At the same time, the age-old communication technique of storytelling is being reinvented as a way to roll out strategic programs to large multicultural groups on a global scale. But how can you develop your team’s expertise to ensure strategic initiatives get the best results? This book provides insight into systematic coaching when cascading a strategy throughout your organization, and explains the benefits of reinforcing strengths, identifying weaknesses, and correcting failures to build competitive advantage. It goes beyond merely explaining training strategy; it provides details on how it relates to skills training and how you can leverage this to implement company goals. Drawing on real-life client examples and the inspirational stories of highly successful individuals, this book highlights approaches that have transformed organizations and re-invented training. It dispels myths that exist around traditional training paradigms and brings to light the effectiveness of new methods and approaches. It also addresses the risk of “unlearning” post-training and issues that arise with maintaining performance evaluation and measuring tangible progress, and provides key questions that are relevant at project and company level, plus practical checklists and summaries complementing each chapter of the book.
