About the book

As learning and development (L&D) departments are being told to cut training costs, reach an increasingly global workforce and offer the organization greater levels of course customization, there is significant excitement about learning management systems (LMSs), massive open online courses (MOOCs) and collaborative learning, but the decision to invest in learning technology is high-risk. Learning Technologies in the Workplace shows how learning technology can be successfully integrated to meet business objectives and ensure a successful return on investment.

Featuring case studies and insights from some of the biggest names inf the field like Nick Shackleton-Jones of BP and Rhys Giles of Dixons Carphone, Learning Technologies in the Workplace enables the L&D professional to ask the right questions about the learning technology available, taking into account the level of IT support and subject-matter expertise in-house, the staff's training needs and the level of personalization required. This book also highlights pitfalls to avoid, shows how to identify potential resistance and underlying issues and explains how to win the support of all stakeholders, from senior management to marketing and IT, to ensure the project's greatest chance of success.
