The Future Of Learning In Organizations
Futurist Ross Dawson questions what lies ahead for the Learning & Development department.
Ross Dawson, futurist and strategy advisor, considered the question ‘What is the future of the Learning & Development department?’ on his blog, following a keynote speech at a CADRE seminar.
He poses the possibility that the L&D department might not exist in years to come, as knowledge and learning should be the responsibility of every member of an organization. Rather than one single department, learning should be fully integrated and central to strategy. He raised the idea that small, dedicated L&D teams could focus more on making useful connections, aiding the development of the organization.
