With standard training approaches, less than 20% of learning is transferred back into the workplace and used to deliver positive business results. This book gives a new, step by step methodology as a proven solution to this problem.
Learning transfer is the missing link in training. Using conventional approaches to training, an average of just 10-20% of learning makes it back into the workplace and contributes to better business outcomes. With the current increased emphasis on efficiency and cost-effectiveness, such a dismal record is no longer acceptable. To improve these statistics and to make training truly valuable we must recognise that successful learning is not just about good content and well executed programmes but about finding ways to facilitate genuine behavioural change and accountability back in the workplace. This book provides the necessary tools to enable trainers, buyers of training and L&D professionals to do just this. It presents the new, proven TLA methodology, which acknowledges the important role of ADDIE in the instructional design process but takes learning a step further. TLA focuses on the fact that to generate significant behavioural change, consistent, systematic follow-up after the training event is critical.

Turning Learning into Action is a well-argued description of how training and learning in organisations is falling short; what can be done about it and how these different actions can benefit not only trainers and their participants but other stakeholders whose involvement is crucial for success. If you've ever been frustrated that the hard work put into creating the 'perfect' training programmes has been undermined by low levels of commitment to doing things differently and doing different things once the formal training input is over, then you will not be alone in the field of L&D. In Turning Learning into Action, Emma Weber has provided some straightforward and instantly applicable routes away from that frustration being repeated in the future.
