New business realities and demands, coupled with new technologies in a changing competitive landscape are causing corporate learning departments to rethink their value, role, and impact in the organization. Added to this changing environment is an increasing level of business uncertainty that causes managers to question investment in learning and development. In a world of limited resources and tight budgets, learning must be viewed as essential to a successful achievement of business goals.
The individual driving this function, the Chief Learning Officer (CLO), is in a unique position to add significant value to the organization. Chief Talent Officer examines the critical role of the CLO, and explores thirteen areas where the CLO can add value from strategy and performance measurement, to leadership development and employee engagement. This revamped second edition brings in fresh examples and data, plus a wealth of new perspectives from some of the world s best CLOs.
This book is a vital tool for learning and development managers who need to showcase the value of learning to their organization; and it will also be a valuable resource for upper-level students of human resource development."
