The 3 things missing from most L&D strategies

You do have a learning and development (L&D) strategy, don’t you? They can vary greatly in what they cover and how detailed they are, but far too often they are missing three things which are critical to success.

1. Does your L&D strategy create behavioural change?

These initiatives should be focused on changing behaviours in the workflow so that people are performing better and producing better results. Even if the initiative is in place for tick box compliance reasons, you still want it to be compliant. There are other motives for L&D, but the primary one is surely embedding and sustaining new behaviours that support execution of the organisational strategy?
