L&D’s Playbook for the Digital Age Paperback
by Brandon Carson
Organizations are facing an era of rapid acceleration. With the integration of new technologies and digital strategies, workers at all levels will need to build capacity much faster than ever before by navigating more complex systems and processes. Yet learning and development (LandD) has lagged behind in this area, as too many LandD functions still focus on transactional interactions in a large and complex portfolio while under-resourced. In LandD’s Playbook for the Digital Age, Brandon Carson argues that it is time to reorient LandD, take a more proactive role in empowering the workforce and creating a new framework for the development of skills and abilities. LandD leaders need to realize that this is one of the most critical business functions and that they need to have sufficient funds and resources to deliver the performance improvements essential to the business. LandD cannot be stopped and, in fact, needs a new playbook to navigate the radical and complex transformation of the demanding digital age. Coming from the world of sports, a playbook ensures that players know their roles, connect as a team, and understand the winning strategy and how to execute the game plan. For LandD, a playbook can help establish alignment between the team and with stakeholders by being flexible as business needs change. Carson walks you through the steps to formulate how a new playbook could help align your LandD function, whether it’s a renovation, new skills, or a renovation. Asks readers to speak the language of business instead of the language of learning.For example, does your workforce repair airplanes or allow safe flight? In other words, can you be the visionary your organization needs?
