The world is changing fast, but are you? Do you know where the skills gaps are in your organization? Do you know how to fill these gaps? Most importantly, can you make the necessary changes quickly enough to succeed?Learning at Speed is a practical book which brings together the best from lean and agile methodologies to show how they can be applied to learning and development (L&D) to improve individual and organizational performance. This provides a people development framework which can be used to deconstruct a learning strategy and optimise each element for improved results. It shows how to identify learning barriers and possible solutions, leverage company data to understand learning needs and how to assess the most effective learning resources and delivery channels.

Crucially, Learning at Speed shows how to track metrics that matter, get the most from your budget and how to build a business case to get stakeholder buy-in. Understanding how to continuously upskill and reskill a workforce at speed will ensure that organizations can stay ahead of the competition. Supported by templates, worksheets, case studies, examples and practical advice, this book is the practical guide that shows learning and development (L&D) professionals how to achieve this.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Your company's speed of learning is your moat and this book is how you build it." - Lauren Cunningham, L&D Manager, Bumble

"This book is exactly what the L&D professional needs right now. It has broken the mould of 'how to' learning books with Nelson applying a unique lens of entrepreneurship and start up strategies. A must have for any 'learningpraneur ' or intrapreneur. This a seminal book of our times." - Rustica Lamb , CEO and Founder, Bloom Learning Technologies

"This book captures sustainable shifts to a more appropriate, effective L&D function, better suited to modern businesses of the today and the future. I am particularly impressed with the author for grabbing the lessons learnt and best bits from the disciplines of marketing, digital agencies and start-ups to bring their speed into the L&D sphere. Taking L&Ders beyond the buzzwords, the author really understands agile, lean and design thinking in a way many L&Ders feel overwhelmed by. With practical suggestions, a myriad of story examples, support to build a new learning ecosystem, and more this book really is a must read for modern L&Ders in business." - Michelle Parry-Slater, Learning and Development Director, Kairos Modern Learning

"In this book, Nelson Sivalingam brings energy, insight and resources from business into the world of L&D. He shows the importance of agility to L&D and gives practical examples of how the function can change to meet the needs of the business and support learning at speed." - Donald H Taylor, Chair, Learning Technologies Conference
