The competition for talent is steadily increasing in the face of growing skills gaps and rapidly changing business needs. As a result, organizations are looking to become more strategic in their approach to learning and development by aligning opportunities with business priorities. The most effective learning strategies incorporate a mix of formal and informal engagements across the employee lifecycle.
Greater alignment with business strategy is a key component of effective leadership development. The competencies and attributes necessary in critical roles can be cultivated in the right people at the right time, ensuring a robust pipeline of future leaders and allowing high-performing individual contributors to continue advancing the business in their own right.
