Training in a Post-Meltdown World

The 2008 global meltdown was a watershed event that has transformed the corporate landscape and from which no country, company or corporate function (and few individuals) has emerged unscathed. For all corporate functions (including training) there will continue to be intense pressure in the current and future environment to “prove our worth” or be quickly sidelined – perhaps permanently. The unique challenge for corporate training functions is that, in general, we have not been seen as directly supporting the corporate strategy or contributing to the bottom line. Training in a Post Meltdown World, by John Wells, CEO of Executive Perspectives, provides practical tools to address this challenge and deliver measureable business results through training.
