Aug 3 | What won’t change in L&D? | Respond to this email with an answer to this question.

Aug 4 | [This won't change] "I want more for less" | You have to focus on both things. Great product and right budget fit.

Aug 5 | [This won't change] "Show me the money… or the reaction" | It is not just a popular phrase but also the implicit question asked of L&D managers by functional heads while evaluating the impact of training on business results in terms of revenues or costs.

Aug 6 | [This won't change] The way people learn | I cannot control the way people learn or even make them want to learn. Training and support will have to adapt around learning.
