Does training results in measurable behavioral change to improve job performance and business RESULTS? This is one of the key questions among many leaders in relation to Learning and Development (L&D) investment. 

While many leaders and professional organizations like PMI is highly committed to facilitate talent development, the IMPACT of L&D is questionable. 2017 Global Learning Transfer Research report published by Lever- Transfer of Learning and Lentum Ltd revealed that only 10%-20% of any new skills and behaviors are applied in the workplace (transferoflearning.com). Therefore most training is not achieving the expected IMPACT.
