Synopsis: Executives and other high-ranking organizational learning professionals have faced down a barrage of too-good-to-be-true proclamations and pronouncements in recent years. First were the claims that e-learning would soon replace all classroom training, followed closely by the absolute urgent need to install expensive enterprise-wide learning management systems to track and report on this brave new digital leaning world. No wonder seasoned learning professionals find themselves a little jaded. Lies About Learning is a frank and entertaining look at where myth and reality diverge in the multi-billion-dollar workplace learning industry. Written by 12 high-level executives from a wide range of industries, Lies About Learning offers a rare insight into the business of organizational learning. From e-learning, to learning management, to leadership programs, to research and the value of consultants, this book exposes the most prevalent myths and offers the counterweight of reality and real world practice. In the end, Lies About Learning provides executives and learning professionals with the tools to ask the right questions and enable them to make learning decisions that are measurable, predictable, and meaningful for the organization.
