Excellence in Learning and Development Practice: Drive Individual and Business Results as a top-performing L&D practitioner (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The world of work is changing and the pressure on learning and development (L&D) professionals to develop a workforce with the necessary skills to succeed both now and in the future as well as to drive overall business performance is huge. However, this goal can only be achieved if L&D practitioners themselves have the right skills, capabilities and strategies in place. According to research from Towards Maturity which surveyed 7,500 learning professionals, 95% of people didn't feel confident in their ability to meet this objective because they felt ill-equipped and under-skilled. Excellence in Learning and Development Practice solves this problem by providing L&D practitioners with everything they need to use their role to drive individual and business performance.

Excellence in Learning and Development Practice covers how to assess the current learning landscape, how to prioritize performance, how to overcome barriers to learning, outlines strategies for learning success and develops the skills and mindset needed to succeed in an L&D role. It is supported by insights from Towards Maturity research throughout and is full of practical tips, tools and examples from top-performing learning organizations. It also includes interviews with exceptional L&D professionals such as the Chief Learning Strategist at PwC and the Learning and Innovation Director at Unilever. Written by a leading name in the learning industry, this is a book that no L&D practitioner can afford to be without.
