    What we will need to do, instead, is ensure that a full suite of tools are available, and provide individuals with the ability to work together to create worthwhile working/learning environments. Instead of factory-style production teams, agile programming uses far fewer, but better, programmers. The principles of communicating, focusi ng on simplicity, releasing often and testing often are also applicable to developing good instructional programs. Does instructional systems design (ISD) need more agility ? The root of the problem is that ISD views instruction as separate from work.

    The challenge companies like Jobscience seek to solve is providing one up-to-date view of the potential candidate, and make that information easily visible to the recruiter.

But what did surprise us was how low the number still is: our study last year found that only 15% of the organizations surveyed believe their HR teams have strong credibility in talent metrics and analytics.

But once you have these programs running well (and this is no easy task), the remaining 1/3 of the HR budget must optimize its efforts on the strategic value HR and L&D provides: supporting what we now call "talent management" - sourcing, hiring, staffing, training, managing, developing, and supporting the team. talent markets are rapidly changing.
