It can be hard to grasp for some, but it can be learned. Theres a big difference between a learning organization and a training organization. It surprises me how many training programs exist in a vacuum. They might focus on training on specific skills like time-management, budgeting and coaching, for example, but they incorporate very little business context into the design of their programs, and they measure metrics such as usage, rather than real business impact. Top-level training organizations move beyond abstract learning to understand how to align what theyre doing with key business objectives. Our clients who really do this well speak in business terms, not in training lingo.
