Powerful competitive drivers demand a different approach to the development of employees. Emphasis must be shifted from training as a series of top-down interventions to a focus on individual and team learning as an on-going activity. The individual learner will be encouraged to take more responsibility for their learning and E-learning may emerge as the enabling mechanism that allows necessary change to happen. This book sets out a new paradigm for human resource development for the 21st century. It offers both a theoretical framework and practical guidelines derived from innovative research and experience.
