How it works

Learning Councils actively and formally engage functional leaders and managers in the alignment of L&D and business objectives by reviewing strategies, identifying learning program needs, monitoring progress and results, and guiding future learning investments and activities. Such councils take pressure off L&D leadership by becoming partners in strategy, approving investment decisions, helping drive compliance and acceptance of policies and practices, and overseeing execution to ensure alignment with business imperatives.

Oftentimes, leaders from Manufacturing, Operations, IT, Sales, Customer Support, and Finance are the heaviest users of training in the company and as the providers of people-based HR and Talent strategies, HR and L&D should always have a top representative on such a council.
