The #1 Reason Training Initiatives Fail According to Executives Whitepaper Download.

When we talk to HR and training, they consistently tell us that learning initiatives fail for one of three reasons.  Executives tell us that all three assumptions are incorrect.  Do any of these actual quotes from HR and training clients sound familiar?  “Managers do not have the time for their people to be taken away from their jobs to attend training.”  “We do not have enough executive support or budget to do this right. So this is better than nothing.”  “We need to do a better job marketing what we are offering to employees so we can fill these classes.”

These unfortunately common statements reflect the #1 reason that business unit executives and line managers believe that training initiatives fail – a lack of Relevance.  By a lack of Relevance, we mean that the training has little connection or applicability to the key business issues that keep executives, managers, or participants awake at night. While this may sound obvious, we continue to find organizations that press ahead with learning and development initiatives even though there is no clear link to business priorities.
