About the book

This book is about the provision of workplace learning in times of significant change and about employing learning as a critical weapon in the fight for an organisation's success. The authors scope out their vision of the trainer as a 'learning architect' whose role is to create an organisation-wide structure for learning. Within this structure, the range of professionals now responsible for training - trainers, departmental managers, training consultants, coaches and mentors as well as line managers - will be encouraged to choose from a variety of different learning opportunities including in-house training, individual coaching or external courses to create a flexible learning environment.

The book explores the strategic arguments necessary to implement a learning architecture, the competencies and responsibilities required of the 'learning architect' to create this environment and the practical opportunities available to those carrying out the programmes within the organisation.
