Learning is central to the long-term success of any team. It is far too important to dismiss or to relegate to a 'nice to do' list. In The Learning Imperative, bestselling authors Mark Burns and Andy Griffith explore the common barriors to effective learning and present a range of practical tools and strategies to help organisations bring about - and reap the benefits of-a more positive learning culture. Together they map out the key stages of the learning journey and provide a step-by-step guide for team leaders and managers who want to improve learning in their teams. They also provide essential guidance on the design and delivery of effective training programmes.
