Description - Learning in Organizations by Peter J. Smith

This book focuses on the issues of diversity in the context of organizational learning: those present in organizations among learners, and those present within and between organizations. In order for learning to be effective and efficient these diversities must be addressed and acknowledged in the learning design process. In this fresh and innovative approach to the complexities and challenges inherent in organizational learning diversity, the authors show that in learning there are no generic solutions. They argue that there is no 'best way' of planning, organizing and implementing learning in relation to the workplace, and instead provide context-specific solutions to the dilemmas and issues that diversities present. With an international approach, grounded in theory and incorporating strong practical examples, this book will be essential reading for all those studying, teaching or practicing human resource development, human resource management or professional education.
