Learning and development is essential to organizational success. Training courses were traditionally used as the key method of teaching, but the focus is increasingly shifting to individuals and managers adopting a more flexible approach to learning. Organizations want to ensure that their employees are not just learning new skills, but are using their existing skills to maximum effect. Workplace Learning and Development guides managers and employees through the concept of workplace learning. It identifies the variety of flexible learning strategies and methods, explains how to select the right method for a specific situation, and illustrates how these methods can add value to overall performance. Real-life examples of workplace learning give readers insight into how the process works and how they can use these tools for their specific needs.
