Transforming Training Summary


Transforming Training: A Guide to Creating A Flexible Learning Environment: The Rise of the Learning Architects by David Mackey

This book is about the provision of workplace learning in times of significant change and about employing learning as a critical weapon in the fight for an organisation's success. The authors scope out their vision of the trainer as a 'learning architect' whose role is to create an organisation-wide structure for learning. Within this structure, the range of professionals now responsible for training - trainers, departmental managers, training consultants, coaches and mentors as well as line managers - will be encouraged to choose from a variety of different learning opportunities including in-house training, individual coaching or external courses to create a flexible learning environment. The book explores the strategic arguments necessary to implement a learning architecture, the competencies and responsibilities required of the 'learning architect' to create this environment and the practical opportunities available to those carrying out the programmes within the organisation.

As they scope out their vision of the trainer as "learning architect", they explore the competencies and responsibilities required of the learning architect to create this environment."
