Training Training Function Strategies Best Practices Whitepaper Download

Good learning leaders know the top 5 training strategies and key mistakes to avoid while implementing them.  They start by creating a training strategy that outlines clear and compelling choices about where to play and what actions to take in alignment with the overall business and talent strategies.

Done right, a successful training strategy sets a learning and development function up to perform beyond just the sum of its parts. Without a clear direction, your training function may tactically achieve some short-term wins, but it will fail to garner the ongoing trust, support and results required to make a meaningful impact on your career, your company or your employee base.

There are many different paths to creating a successful training function. In our experience, however, there are 5 main training strategy approaches that differentiate one training function from another. One training strategy direction is not necessarily better than another. Rather, the key is to create a core training strategy focus that works in your specific environment and addresses your most pressing needs. A successful training strategy, however, always aligns with the company’s business strategy, organizational culture and talent management scheme.

In this Top 5 Training Strategies and Key Mistakes to Avoid Best Practices Whitepaper, we review the 5 main training strategies that differentiate one training function from another and the key mistakes to avoid for each direction.
