Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

Training is out of sync with the times 11. What worked twenty years ago doesn’t work well in the social, always-on, networked world of business we now inhabit. Traditional training departments cannot build courses fast enough to keep up with the speed of change.
