    A Look Ahead at L&D 2016/2017

    Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: L&D is in crisis. L&D must evolve or become irrelevant. We’ve heard this declaration so often during the past few years that it’s beginning to lose its shock value. Indeed, it seems this conviction has become common knowledge among L&D leaders: According to Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report the gap between the importance of employee development and L&D’s perceived ability to meet that need has jumped by 430 percent during the past two years. The problem is not effort. You aren’t likely to find a more dedicated or idealistic group of people than L&D professionals. But somewhere around the turn of the last century, organizations began to prioritize efficiency—and as part of that movement, learning was confined to classrooms in order to make it more efficient.

    Invisible L&D

    Our jobs as L&D professionals was easier 10 years ago. Information flowed from the top of the organization to the bottom. Managers and facilitators had the most information, which they then imparted to employees like benevolent overlords. But that is no longer true. Technology and frustratingly self-sufficient learners often mean that employees know more than facilitators or managers on a given subject.
