  2. 2. Experiential learning has become the buzzword, and organisations need to build an immersive learning ecosystem Lesser reliance on management development programs and greater emphasis on mentorship will be seen in the coming months While new methodologies continue to evolve, organisations should reduce their reliance on traditional channels if they want to make their L&D efforts successful.
  3. 3. 2014 is going to be an exciting and challenging year for HR, learning and talent professionals – a year where it is going to be increasingly difficult to attract, retain and develop talent. The success keys for developing talent are passion, innovation and engagement. Leadership will continue to be in short supply and L&D professionals will need to adapt and innovate.

  6. 6. Ever wondered why an individual learns to drive a car by just not reading about it in a textbook but by actually doing it?

If we look back at the history of education and training, in the last 150-odd years, we have predominantly followed the “broadcast style” for imparting knowledge and skills to students and professionals alike.

  7. 7. The skill deficit is a challenge that Indian companies across sectors are facing and will continue to face in the coming months. While the government’s emphasis is on developing basic vocational skills to make the potential workforce employable, the employability of graduates and professionally trained candidates is also under question. Besides that, Indian companies are facing a leadership crisis at the middle management level. As a consequence of these trends, training and development budgets are expected to rise across all industries in the coming months. Click for full story
