As the need to attract, retain and grow talent moves to the top of the strategic agenda, L&D has the chance to become as vital to business as finance or marketing.

In the new world, L&D needs to be about value not cost; outcomes not activity; proven contribution to the business not audience delight.

Traditional development solutions are either custom or off-the-shelf – the first is slow to create, expensive and lacks responsiveness; the latter tends not to be fit for purpose, a one-size approach that fits no-one.

Every avenue of conversation is explored, every concept generated by the group.” Dialogue junkie

© Mind Gym Join the revolution – Your mission 21 1. Seek ways to miniaturize your learning experiences. In terms of content, what is the vital few? 2. Create engagement. Tap into the self-interest of the participants. 3. Use distributed experiences. Spaced practice delivers much better value than massed practice. 4. Tune the environment to activate participants’ prior learning. 5. Develop value proposals to win over business stakeholders.
