Handbook of Corporate University Development: Managing Strategic Learning Initiatives in Public and Private Domains
Gower Publishing, Ltd., 2005 - Business & Economics - 285 pages
The emphasis on corporate universities has been a driving force in moving companies beyond a restricted approach to training, to a central vision for learning within the organization. However, there have been failures and many corporate universities have struggled to bring a business rigour to learning or to align their development with the key business and financial drivers of the organization. It is time for the Corporate University to demonstrate how business rigour, handled deftly and with strong and perceptive leadership, can revolutionize learning both inside and outside the organization. The Handbook of Corporate University Development is an important catalyst towards this process.It draws on experience from around the world, to provide anyone responsible for strategy and learning at senior levels in government, education and business with a picture of current best practice.
What people are saying - Write a review
The authors provide well organized information for the development of adult learning opportunities that exist in addition to Corporate Universities. As a result of being able to scan much of the book online, I have already requested it for inner-library loan and for future purchase by the university library. $190.00 is a bit steep for an individual!
The book is supportive of much of the corporate education initiatives with which I am involved.
I rate it very highly.
