About the book

IIn order to be effective, Learning and Development (L&D) programmes must be linked to an organisation's overall business strategy. Creating a Learning and Development Strategy is an engaging, practical and accessible guide which shows HR business partners and L&D professionals how to achieve this. It covers how to plan, create and implement an L&D strategy which aligns to business goals which will not only create value for individual employees but for the organization as a whole.

Through the use of strategic information and tools, along with practical examples, checklists, and assignments, Creating a Learning and Development Strategy will enable HR and L&D professionals to work with colleagues to align learning and development, challenge business assumptions and clarify the organisation's needs and objectives. Including guidance on prioritising and resourcing, return on investment (ROI) of L&D programmes as well as marketing and political considerations, this book covers everything you need to know to build the business case for L&D programmes and effectively develop people.
