L&D: Groundhog Decades

It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again

Seriously – Haven’t We Been Here Before?

If you had been asleep for 20 years – you’d wake to something new. Or some would have you believe is new:

Accountability – in L&D – to the Business.


Actually – what’s old is new again.

From Wikipedia

Rip Van Winkle” is a short story by American author Washington Irving published in 1819. It follows a man in colonial America named Rip Van Winkle who falls asleep in the Catskill Mountains and wakes up twenty years later, having missed the American Revolution.


The L&D Revolution

Focused on Performance Competence – all over again.

I’ve seen it come and go. Mostly mishandled by those in Training.

Mishandled so poorly that they went into some sort of Witness Protection program and changed their name to Learning. Back in the 1990s. Hiding there ever since.


Now some would have you believe that it’s a THING. A new Thing. But it is not.

But Anyway – Welcome Back!

Wipe that sleep from your eyes – and focus on Performance – and Enable That!

Via better Analysis. Quick. Authentic Analysis of both Performance and all of the Enablers.


Including Knowledge/Skills. Including Current State gaps and their causes. Including Knowledge/Skills.
