Editor's note
If you are about to draft proposals for next year's training
budget don't miss the responses to Nik Kellingley's question
about how much money and time to invest in training per
employee. Responses range from the specific - 5-10 days - to
ideas on how to identify development needs and tie them in to
business priorities.

And for some inspirational advice on how to stretch that budget
when you do get it, take a look at the responses to Ian Stone's
question on e-learning versus a team of trainers. Here Martin
Schmalenbach explains how as the sole training professional
responsible for the development needs of 700 people he managed
to develop a programme of face-to-face training that cost less
than an online solution.

ideas posted this week or ask a question of your own at:
