If so, you're not alone.
While all organizations need to develop and deploy multiple strategies, learning can sometimes fall outside the standard scope of strategies that make it up to the C-suite's purview. Sure, they concentrate on the overall business strategy, marketing strategy, sales strategy, product strategy, and so forth, but why does the learning strategy not automatically make the short list?
Part of the problem might be that many companies struggle to create learning programs that can measurably affect stated business goals. Another challenge is that L&D groups are still figuring out the right ways to develop learning experiences that impact employee performance, which would clearly be something that catches the attention of the broader organization's leadership at numerous levels.
“Though aligning the learning strategy with the business is considered important or critical by 78% of companies, only 18% say they are ready to take action. What can be done to help create a more robust learning strategy with a connection to the business?”
