Training describes a structured set of events that when designed and assembled carefully can provide an effective way to help people accelerate learning (learning = behaviour change). I don’t want this post to be a criticism of an individual survey design, but I do think that the designers of data-gathering surveys such as these need to think about the terminology they use carefully.

Especially if we take the advice of Harold Jarche in thinking about the power of loose hierarchies and strong networks , and if our organisation actively encourages building a sharing, co-operative and collaborative culture of continuous learning. L&D specialists should be focusing on understanding critical business problems that are being caused by underperformance and then working with stakeholders to design the best ways to solve them.
