LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT in ORGANISATIONS: STRATEGY, EVIDENCE and PRACTICE provides a comprehensive and thematic overview of the thinking, research evidence and practice of strategic L&D in organisations, to help students of L&D and HRM to acquire a deep understanding of the field and to inform the practice of L&D professionals. Each chapter incorporates pedagogical features to enable the student or practitioner to apply the concepts to organisational life, link theory to practice and signpost readers to the best available evidence on L&D practices.
The three key sections of the book cover different aspects of L&D:
Section One: Concepts and Context of L&D in Organisations: The concepts of L&D, the external and internal context of L&D and the key dimensions of strategic L&D in organisations, including the key theoretical and conceptual foundations of strategic L&D;
Section Two: Theory and Practice of L&D: The main theories, concepts, models and practices that underpin strategic L&D in organisations;
Section Three: Developing the L&D Professional and the Future Role of L&D: The changing roles of L&D practitioners in organisations, their competence development, professional ethics and the future of strategic L&D.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT in ORGANISATIONS: STRATEGY, EVIDENCE and PRACTICE is published in association with the Irish Institute of Training and Development and aims to set the agenda for L&D professionals in the future.
