Feel under pressure? You’re not alone. The traditional model of learning and development (L&D) is straining to meet the needs of today’s businesses. They need more than a schedule of courses and a suite of online resources. They need an L&D department with the skills to support short-term performance, build long-term capability and provide strategic guidance.
But what are the skills that the 21st Century L&D Department needs?
Working with a group of over 40 learning experts world-wide, the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) set out to identify these skills in May of this year. The result of their deliberations: a refreshed LPI L&D Capability Map, to be launched in early October. The LPI L&D Capability Map describes 25 skills, across 4 levels.
