By most estimates, only 10 – 30% of training transfers into job performance. That low estimate creates a trillion dollar training problem in the U.S. alone. The whole area of learning transfer – has been significantly neglected as a business discipline. As a result, companies are now being forced to evaluate if their training is having business impact, adding value and delivering the strategic advantage that it should.
To deal with this issue, there appears to be a global movement of people who are filling the potential vacuum in both corporations and the entrepreneurial market. It’s a force not only in the West, but in the Middle East, India and Asia. The outdated learning and development models of the past are being questioned and broken.
