L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 03: Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process

T&D Process  1.1: Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process

Note: In my 2001 book I continued my decades old name for the profession as T&D – Training & Development.

Convert for your use as necessary. I will use both T&D and L&D in this weekly series for 2018.


Not all loose processes need to be tightened up.

You should only do that Investment if the Returns warrant.


Learning By Design vs Learning By Chance

When the Cost of Non-Conformance of poor Process/people Performance warrants the Investment in T&D/ Learning/Knowledge Management Content – then make those investments.

And – just because an L&D profession can determine a valid Learning Need and gap in Content – does not in and of itself warrant meeting that need – in any manner.

It’s a Business Decision. 


The L-C-S Framework View

Overview of the Big Picture


T&D Process 1.1: Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process

Process Purpose

The Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process ensures that the T&D system, including the T&D leadership and their T&D Governance and Advisory System, is acutely aware of all of the strategic business drivers of the various components of the enterprise and takes those into account when generating T&D’s own strategic and operational plans and activities.



Process Description

The Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process deliberately and systematically engages the key elements of the enterprise, typically via the T&D Governance and Advisory structures, to determine those showstopping needs that will help or hinder the accomplishment of the strategic intent for those business-critical needs. Not all needs across the enterprise are equal in their potential payback.

This proactive uncovering of the potential enterprise investments in T&D by the T&D system, as led by T&D leadership in collaboration with both the T&D Advisory and Governance Process elements, is critical to the viability of the T&D system. The system and processes put in place should formally elicit annual strategic plans of the enterprise.

This will lead to uncovering exactly where the key stakeholders, the shareholders of the enterprise, would want their strategic bets placed.

The Enterprise Strategic Plans Surveillance Process interfaces with many of the other T&D systems’ processes.
