The aim of this series is to highlight the important shift that some L&D leaders and practitioners have made in order to more predictably and reliably affect individual and organisational performance, achieving much more as a consequence.
For the third episode, Guy Wallace and I speak with Anne-Marie Burbidge, Head of Learning & Development at Utility Warehouse (a UK-based multiservice utility provider) who draws on 15 years experience of running L&D teams. Anne-Marie is keenly interested in Agile principles and understanding how data can help us, using a range of tools and approaches to understand what's really going on in order to grow capability and confidence effectively.
'People can only perform to a level that the environment around them allows.'
'Understanding what the real problem is, leads you a fair way towards the solution.'
'When someone comes to you and says I need training, don´t hear training, hear help.'
'Pilot, test, experiment, and scale-up.'
'Good L and D is quite stealthlike in many respects, but you are also well networked.'
