Editor's note
There was a collective nod of recognition from the TrainingZONE
community this week when the latest CIPD report branded self-
directed learning as the best way for organisations to keep pace
with rapid and regular change.

But, as TrainingZONE member Rachel Doherty asked, how do you
motivate staff to take a pro-active approach to their own
learning? And once you have such a learning organisation, as
Roger Martin commented, how do you measure the impact of self-
directed learning?

Martyn Sloman, who authored the CIPD research, has agreed to
write more on this topic for TrainingZONE soon. But if you have
managed to create a "learning to learn" environment we would
love to hear your experiences at:

Review: Leadership the Sven-Goran Eriksson Way
