What should learning and development professionals prepare for next?

Get the ultimate guide to future-proofing your career.

What if I told you that there is a way and a method to increase your chances even when faced with such challenges? The eBook What Next Should Learner and Development Professionals Prepare For? does just that. Let us be clear, however, that this method is not a panacea. It’s simply a tool that helps you gather and organize the information you need. The value of this information is entirely up to you and the way in which you use it.

STOP and prepare for the future

Learners working for agile organizations have a very solid understanding of how to correct their course in case something goes wrong. The STOP system is a mnemonic tool that uses the same prerequisites as an agile system to prepare you for the future as efficiently as possible. Each of the letters in STOP represents a different level of the system.

Scan the system

The first chapter corresponds to the letter “S” which stands for “Scan The System”. You need to take a step back and focus on the bigger picture. Can you see what are the key factors causing the disruption of L&D in your company? Can you do a systems analysis for them? Such a review should include a Venn diagram. That way, you can understand how they intersect and interact with each other.

Target trends

In the next chapter we discuss the “target trends”. In this chapter 4 different forward-looking factors are analyzed in three different dimensions. These factors are volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. The three dimensions are also drivers, effects and requirements. When you understand how this network is performing and how these forces interact with each other, you can protect your organization. Because of this, the VUCA model is one of the oldest and most reliable tools on the market.

Optimize resources

The following chapter is “O” which means “Optimizing Resources”. This is a list of ways you can optimize your resources, including:

  • Receive buy-in
  • Understand management problems
  • Teach others how to learn
  • Competency assessment and model
  • EQ – adaptability
  • Learning and development competence models
  • capacity

Proceed with a plan

The last chapter corresponds to the letter “P” for “proceeding with a plan”. This part of the eBook is all about planning and you can formulate your plan and communicate with the rest of your team.

What should learning and development professionals prepare for next?

The eBook What Next Should Learner and Development Professionals Prepare For? can help you prepare for things to come. This is not a stagnant analysis of trending problems and speculation about how to deal with them. Rather, it’s a collection of tools and methods that you can use to act on * anything *, whether or not we can currently predict it.
