Learning does not happen overnight

Learning is a skill that requires practice.  As you practice and become more experienced at what you do, the better your performance becomes.

One core problem that we have identified is that after completing a formal training event, people come back to work and do not know how to apply what they learned. 

Companies invest a lot of money in formal training hoping that their employees will learn to do the job. 

Unfortunately, the results that managers expect,  have nothing to do with learning, but rather application of acquired knowledge and skills to the job.

In other words, managers do not care whether learning is done formally or informally as long as they can see measurable results.

As an Instructional Designer and E-Learning Specialist, I am not against formal training. In fact, I believe that going to formal classes and taking e-Learning courses can be extremely beneficial. However, as a Learning and Development professional, I strongly believe that both formal and informal learning should be taken into account to achieve the best possible results.
