Learning outcomes should always lead to positive business outcomes and greater organizational agility. Unfortunately, 50% or more of the funding for training delivery is wasted because learning isn't actually being transferred into the workplace. This extremely high learning scrap rate is both a significant and hidden problem.
There is a very real need for learning professionals to take a leadership role in resolving this situation. Learning waste is greatly reduced when well-designed learning programs recognize learning occurs in formal, informal and social setting. Since most learning takes place outside the formal event, more learning and reinforcement must be embedded into the workflow.
When done well, the resulting gain in learning transfer and increased performance for your organization is significant.
