Talent development professionals spend a lot of time brainstorming, researching, designing, developing, and then launching training programs. But the success rate with learning transfer is often low. So, how do you increase the learning transfer rate and ensure your efforts don’t go to waste? In this issue of TD at Work, Fergal Connolly first pinpoints how L&D is often unsuccessful in influencing learning and post-training behavior. Further, he:

  • Illustrates the various influences on learning transfer: learning design, the learner, and the learning ecosystem
  • Highlights effective learning transfer approaches from academic literature.
  • Outlines concrete, evidence-based methods you can use to improve transfer rates.

Tools & Resources in this issue are a learning action plan template, learning design checklist, and leadership discussion planning worksheet.
