The logistics and hassles of keeping the training department running are sufficient to fill up their days and obscure the real purpose. Matthews goes on to say that the future of training is in building the capability of employees to do their jobs more effectively. Today, resources are too precious. p.32). Why Learn?

Clive on Learning

I'm currently working with a client that is looking to assemble a curriculum of learning modules for thousands of NGO personnel working in developing countries across the world. These modules are just one element in a wider learning architecture that looks to develop a range of core competences through a variety of means - experiential, on-demand, non-formal and formal.

It would be easy to just miss out this element for self-directed learners, but this would be second best. instructional design

Value of Investment (VOI) vs. Return on Investment

Kapp Notes

Perhaps the constant effort to find the ROI of higher education or even training programs is mis-placed, should we be asking ourselves if an alternative exists?

ROI formulas provide a myopic and overly tactical view of IT initiatives. VOI is subjective and difficult to measure with the same precision as ROI. Out and About
