The Learning Circuits

T+D (formerly called Training & Development) is the magazine of ASTD (formerly known as the American Society for Training & Development). The cover story of the last issue tells WLP (workplace learning and performance) professionals that Business Acumen is Priority One. The article, Build Your Business Acumen , tells us that we WLP professionals "need to think and talk like their internal customers." That's Latin for "To be, rather than to seem."

ASTD’s own studies of practice, and others, show steady increases in the use of technology for learning and performance.
