The Wisdom of Strategic Learning has enabled many organizations to develop a strategic approach to learning and development. Its premise that learning must be integrated with the strategic direction of the organization has been validated by numerous successful businesses which have implemented its tried and tested approaches. This second edition of Ian Cunningham's book updates and expands material on the importance of the self managed learning approach to create focused, active and committed employees. A new chapter on the role and development of staff in SML programmes has been added, along with new appendices, for example on selling the approach. With new case material including the use of online groups on the Internet, this practical, thought-provoking book shows how the ideas behind the learning organization can be applied for strategic advantage.
