L&D - new challenges, new approaches
Published: December 2014
This report forms the first part of the CIPD programme of research exploring changing L&D roles and capabilities. It reviews the context in which L&D professionals operate and highlights where there have been significant changes in recent years, or where changes are expected. It explores how these changes are affecting the organisation, and in turn how L&D needs to adapt and respond.
This report is for L&D practitioners, to help them consider how they can best respond to changes in the external environment in order to improve the effectiveness of their learning practice, and in turn enhance organisational performance. It is also relevant for HR and OD professionals keen to explore the impact of the key drivers of change. It is hoped that the report sparks insight and action, to encourage more organisations to align their L&D practice to future requirements.
