Product description

From the Inside Flap

In some ways, it's surprising that learning anddevelopment (L&D) is such a large and fast-growingindustry--to the tune of around $80 billion. We no longer livein an era of lifelong employee loyalty, so why are the mostsuccessful companies, from Defense Acquisition University toPfizer, still spending so much on L&D? They know how tomeasure the business benefit of L&D spending. Using casestudies from these and other top firms, Gene Pease, BonnieBeresford, and Lew Walker walk you through how to ensure that yourhuman capital dollars are well spent.

Developing Human Capital is one of the first works toexplore learning and development from a data-driven, analyticalstandpoint. This text is remarkably comprehensive, explaining studydesign and alignment, measurement tools, and future analyticsstrategy. If you have no idea what to measure or how to measure it, this book is the perfect resource. Maybe you've been"building the business case" for training and otherdevelopment for years, but without quantitative measurement, thebusiness case is just marketing. This book explains why now is thetime to develop a measurement strategy for your firm'sL&D investments.

To anyone in the HR or learning and development fields, it willcome as no surprise that technology is central to developinghuman capital. Computer-based learning modalities, analyticsoftware, and an overwhelming surplus of data are part of the newreality. The authors incisively add the generational shift andchanging workplace to this mix, and the result is an enormousopportunity to gather information that will drive better humancapital decisions. And by now it is so well known that it hardlybears repeating: in the 21st century, optimized humancapital investment is the permanent home of competitiveadvantage.
