Strategic Learning & Development Master Class

‘Human Resource Development, as an organisational process, comprises the skillful planning and facilitation of a variety of formal and informal learning and knowledge processes and experiences, primarily but not exclusively in the workplace, in order that organisational progress and individual potential can be enhanced through the competence, adaptability, commitment and knowledge-creating activity of all who work in the organisation.’ Harrison and Kessels (2004)

NEOEDGE is bringing to you another of our premier course “Strategic Learning and Development Master Class” to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 14 to 16 June 2011.

This program addresses the whole arena of human resource development to identify how learning professionals should be positioning themselves to be effective producers of business results. In addition to developing the skills of a learning professional, it looks to develop the policies and procedures required to ensure alignment of learning initiatives and interventions with the business requirements, the visible support of senior executives, delivering efficiency and effectiveness of the department, linking learning to measurable performance and broadening the department offerings beyond formal classroom training.

Led by Mr Ian R Thompson, the course will be highly interactive with case studies and real world examples. Ian draws on his personal experiences of working with global organizations and local businesses in more than 30 countries.

His case studies are based on real experiences with these organizations – in oil exploration and oil services, financial services and banking, manufacturing, project management and media.

Ian also draws on the latest research from many sources including the American Society of Training and Development, the British Institute for Learning and Development and Harvard Business School. He weaves these into a series of practical tools for HRD practitioners.
