What do sales, manufacturing, quality and other key departments have in common?

They are all run with business discipline.

Running learning like a business helps to be goal focused and run effectively and efficiently—which in turn, increases the comfort level of the CEO in providing additional resources. L&D typically has not been run like a business which is a primary reason senior leaders often lack confidence in it and scrutinize it more closely than other departments. In this program, we will explore what it means to run L&D like a business with guidance for both small and large organizations.
