Training vs Transformation

Training is a vital piece of today’s business climate. It’s typically at the forefront of conversations around development or growth, but what is the correlation or connection between training and actual business transformation? The assumption has been that if my employees only had the knowledge, they would produce different outcomes. While training is an undoubtedly valuable piece of creating large, organizational change, the outcomes that our organizations produce are highly intertwined with a number of factors on which training has very little impact.

In this episode of SoundNotes, LeadingAgile Training Consultant, Nathan Hummel joins Dave to discuss the role training plays in organizational change, how it impacts Agile transformation, and, what else, beyond training, an organization will need to see true lasting change.
