About the book

Learning for Organizational Development presents how to design, deliver and evaluate effective learning and development (L&D) programmes. This definitive guide to L&D's function in enhancing individual performance and organizational success is a core text for those studying for L&D qualifications such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Intermediate level as well as a useful handbook for L&D professionals looking to further their understanding of the latest developments.

Complete with case studies and reflective questions to aid comprehension, Learning for Organizational Development considers the strategic business function of L&D for communicating the vital contribution that it makes to both individual performance and organizational success. It explores the role of L&D in talent development, showing how to support line managers in developing their people to drive retention and attraction. It also addresses the importance of developing the leadership capability within the organization, and provides practical guidance and examples of what works.

  • Eileen Arney has cut through the mystique surrounding organizational development and produced a book that is both academic in content and practical in use. It clearly sets out the theoretical and research underpinnings for strategies to enable learning and change in organizations. This book will prove invaluable to both students and managers alike. I believe it will fill a gap in this area for people struggling to grasp the concept of organizational development and how it applies to organizations and management practice.
