What makes a good training course? This question feels relatively unasked given its importance, and there are few more important questions any human resources (HR) department or any other could pose. With an average budget in an organization of $1 million annually, there is a vast amount of resources that go into ensuring that the employees receive the best, most relevant training possible. As such, are we convinced that HR departments have the right information at their fingertips to assess just what makes the optimal training course for their people and organization?

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
