Learning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and PracticeLearning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and Practice

STRATEGIC LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT IN ORGANISATIONS: THEORY, FRAMEWORKS, STRUCTURES AND GOVERNANCE begins with a discussion of theoretical approaches to understanding the contribution of L&D in organisations, including the universalistic, contingency and configurational approaches. 


It also considers important theories that provide justification for strategic L&D, including human capital theory, the resource-based view, the behavioural approach, ability-motivation-opportunity theory and attribution theory. 


It then provides a discussion of commonly used frameworks available to conceptualise L&D in organisations, such as the systematic model, open systems model and a number of more contemporary models. 

The ebook concludes with a consideration of alternative ways to structure L&D and the governance dimensions of L&D in organisations.
