Training has failed the business
That's not what I said but someone who has facilitated learning and OD sessions for the last 18 years. Was meeting him last weekend and he asked "Have you ever asked someone what their biggest learning experience has been and been answered with 'a training program'?"
Think about it.
What has been your biggest learning experience?
See? Nothing in the classroom qualifies as a great learning experience.
Yet, tonnes of money get poured into training programs by organizations of all shapes and sizes across the world.
Here's a hint. If you want great learning focus on what happens before the training and what happens after the training.
Of course, as this person shared, maybe we have to evolve a new paradigm for learning totally different from training too.
