There is no doubt that in today’s fast changing work environments and markets, workforce development is crucial for both organizations and employees success and survival. This is reflected in the increased budgets and spending on employee’s development and training across government, federal and private organizations in the Middle East region.
However, even with higher spending, organizations struggle with having skilled management teams and effective leadership.
There are two things missing. The first factor is that we (both the learning & development professionals and the managers), spend most of our efforts in traditional classroom based training or instructor led training to develop employees. The second is that we are perhaps looking at developing the wrong skill sets.
