About the book
The landscape of workplace learning is transforming rapidly. The recognition of social and informal learning, the gamification of training, dealing with big data and working with extended enterprise are just some of the challenges L&D professionals face in their work today.
The Learning Challenge helps practitioners to make sense of the impact the latest developments in this area are having on the learning function in their organisations. It has been written to be a core part of any learning leader’s toolkit.
With the help of international case studies and exclusive interviews with a range of high-profile experts, Nigel Paine defines the role of the new learning professional and illuminates the practical implications for creating and implementing an effective, forward-looking learning strategy for the 21st-century.
