This book offers an integrated and contextualized framework for learning and development (L&D) effectiveness that addresses both the nature of L&D and its antecedents and outcomes in organizations. Scholars and practitioners alike have recognized the important role that L&D plays in organizations, where the development of human capital is an essential component of individual employability, career advancement, organizational performance, and competitive advantage. The development of employees’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes constitutes one of the most important HR challenges that organizations face. The evidence indicates that organizations continue to invest in L&D programs as part of their HR strategy.
