Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development
If your learning and development programme isn't intimately linked with your organisation's business strategy, you are not adding value. Worse, you are actively destroying it. If you can't show line managers how your training programmes will help their teams meet their objectives, what chance do you have that they will take you seriously? Obviously, you want employees who can meet the needs of your organisation. You want senior management to ask your opinion. You want your people development programme to make a difference. To do this, you need to be able to create and implement a learning and development strategy that is aligned to your business strategy. You need to be able to make the case for investment. You need to be able to show that you can deliver results.
