Part three of Generate yielded markedly fewer results than the last two parts. Telling perhaps? My takeaway from the number of results wouldn't be that L&D teams/departments have no value, far from it, but more that it looks like there is a clear alignment issue, and Towards Maturity will of course back up the fact that the highest-performing teams are fully aligned to the needs of the business. Accentuated by the fact that some other questions had some many responses, it seems clear where the areas of passion and strength for L&D are, and where is a need for growth and development for 2015.
How do I demonstrate the value of my L&D department?
Transform ideas and concepts into practice
Use a successful business with a good L&D department as an example
Remove L&D and they’ll soon see value
Set business metrics not L&D metrics
Start with the business
Ask for regular and practical feedback on your L&D strategy
Use a provider who delivers training solutions built around ROI
