Purpose and aim of unit
The purpose of this unit is to develop the learners’ understanding of the fundamental principles and practice of developing a learning and development (L&D) strategy and intervention within the global context, and of the potential value of these practices within globally-dispersed organisations. The unit begins by exploring the concept of learning, training and development, its interplay with cross cultural adjustment and their importance for both international organisations and global virtual teams. It then goes on to examine the range of factors that need to be considered during the process of developing an L&D strategy and intervention for the international markets before implementation. This includes the analysis of cross-cultural training needs for international managers engaged in international assignments and of the involvements of all key stakeholders. Finally, the unit examines the design, delivery and evaluation of the L&D solutions that meet international managers’ needs and most importantly, match the host cultural context.
This unit is suitable for persons who:
- are working in or are seeking to develop a career in L&D.
- aim to learn more about learning and development strategies and interventions within a global context.
- aim to learn more about designing, delivering and evaluating L&D solutions internationally.
On completion of this unit, learners will:
- Understand the concept of learning and development in cross-cultural settings.
- Understand the range of factors that need to be considered when developing a global learning and development strategy and intervention.
- Know how to design, deliver and evaluate a learning and development intervention suitable for international assignments in a timely, feasible and cost-effective way.
To achieve this unit, the evidence the learner presents for assessment must demonstrate that they have met all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria.
