When learning was an IBM Emerging Business Opportunity,we wrote their white papers on strategy, governance, and ROI. Learning strategy--an investment in the future. Introduction Learning drives real business value. A learning strategy is an investment in a future of growth and organizational performance in order to both enable and optimize the workforce during any enterprise transformation initiative. This paper is about learning strategy—what it is, why you need it and what it can do for you. A learning strategy links learning initiatives to overall, enterprise-wide organizational priorities and goals. The underlying assumption that drives an effective learning strategy is that learning is the critical enabler ensuring that people are continuously refreshing and enhancing their skills and knowledge. People must be enabled and re-enabled with the right skills and knowledge to meet the changing demands of the marketplace, customers and business itself. A learning strategy helps to ensure that a business’ learning initiatives are linked to and support the overall business strategy. Fully realizing the potential of learning by linking it to competitive advantage and business success requires an enterprise to align its learning initiatives to organizational priorities using an effective enterprise learning strategy.
