Although L&D is not a neurological science, nor does it tackle human knowledge in the way a cognitive company dealing with AI units would. L&D deals specifically with learning development as it applies to skills workers need to achieve better productivity. But, while the focus is not medical, it still marries a thorough knowledge of cognition with a thorough knowledge of informational and digital systems. So, learning and development should be a strong leading element in the business world. L&D’s knowledge of best practices when it comes to motivating workers and bringing their best skills out is a necessary component for the new millennium workforce, crucial in fact, as it is often antithetical to traditional, “academic” ideas.
- L&D is the unit of business, barring those that are neurological, or specifically cognitive, that has the best grasp of the human brain.
- L&D practices are the best possible for achieving best worker performance, in part because they deal with motivation.
- L&D is poised to set a new paradigm for how things get done, as it recognizes that many outmoded ideas persist in the business world.
“So, if we grasp that nettle and lead the change, we could and should be leading the way to a brighter new future for organizational success.”
