This article by Paul Kearns in Training Zone discusses how “quick fix training” doesn’t work. Obviously I agree 🙂 See my article “comfortable suffering – on why most training (i.e quick fix training) doesn’t work.
“Continuing his series on organisational development, Paul Kearns argues that ‘quick fix’ management methods are not always all they’re cracked up to be.
While some of us might like to think we can work miracles for our organisations none of us should ever fool ourselves into thinking that we can perform magic. Yet in practice that is often what we end up trying to do. In fact, more than any other indicator, the one thing that distinguishes HR and learning strategies from ‘Magic Pill’ practices is a determination and an ability to undertake a proper diagnosis of our organisations’ ‘ailments’ before we offer any solutions at all.” CONT.
