Here’s a brief excerpt of a new and valuable research summary from Brandon Hall Group:
Organizations need to develop and deploy multiple strategies in concert with each other to achieve their goals. There’s an overall business strategy, a marketing strategy, a sales strategy, a product strategy and others. But the learning strategy, which should be an integral part of this mix, does not seem to a top priority for most organizations and is in last place when assessing the importance of strategies to achieve business success.
Bottom Line: The learning strategy must be aligned with the overall business strategy.
Organizations must tackle this problem from both ends; developing learning strategies aligned with the business and creating learning experiences that impact performance.
