Transformation is a very interesting word from the organization point of view. Organization transformation journey can be filled with lot of potholes or roses but it can sometimes lead to anxiety, anger, confusion, withdrawal among the employees. Learning and development can be leveraged to influence talent and business decisions during   the transformation journey to a greater extent.
In Today’s VUCA world where each company has its own culture and values is searching for talents which can set the proper behaviors and attitudes in order to set these things right for an organization. The learning and development teams of each organization try very hard to come up with a training module or some principles which can lead the employees to the high perform tic environment where team members give faster, effective, efficient and productive performances which can help the company to strategize its policies to succeed in the future. But instead L & D teams get stuck finding the solutions and come up with a less effective plan. Thus why can’t the companies go for those training modules or learning modules which are already available either by Stanford University E-learning programs which also has high quality interactive multimedia learning modules. The other options which can be of greater values are like Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) which has amazing mix of traditional course materials to interactive user forums which can be of great learning and it promotes the reuse and remixing of resources through a very well organized package which can be of a great help for the employees to upgrade their skills and knowledge.
L&D plays a major role in building the sustainable culture and values of an organization. It can help in attaining the solid measurable performance gains by motivating the employees and bring the sense of leadership in each and every one. Learning and training should not be constrained to one the talented one’s but to all the employees as it can make an impact. If in an organization where only the talented lot is selected and trained whereas in another organization where every employee is trained and time to time are upgraded with their skill sets. It’s very evident that the second organization will have a greater impact on the company’s development and success.
