Editor's note
Capturing the zeitgeist as ever, this week columnist Godfrey
Parkin looks at the implications of an ageing society on
organisations' skills and knowledge retention. Drawing on
research by Accenture, he explores why so many companies are
kissing goodbye to years of training and development as they
hand over the company carriage clock, and asks what HRD
professionals can do to prevent it.

Elsewhere, in Skills of a Super Coach, Graham Alexander, the
founder of Europe's largest coaching company, offers a unique
insight into his methodology.
