Welcome to the final issue of Enhance for 2016!
As the year draws to a close, lots of businesses are working hard to end the year on a high, and employees are looking forward to a well-earned break for the festive period. But while this year begins to wind down, it’s fair to say that the upcoming New Year is probably already starting to play on many peoples’ minds, with questions around how to make 2017 even more successful.
As ever staff development remains pivotal to the long term success of businesses, and as the New Year begins it is a great time to rethink professional development from both an employee and organisational perspective. In this issue of Enhance we’ve got plenty of food for thought to help encourage high performance in 2017.
With a growing demand for project managers in many industries we explore whether accredited development routes are always the best option to ensure effective project professionals can emerge, or if they may be missing some key elements of development. We also talk with the head of international learning at Thales about whether it’s ever possible to deliver a truly global L&D programme, and we explore the role of the manager in the ever expanding gig economy.
We also have the latest industry news, an interview with a leading choreographer about the role of dance in professional development, and we offer some top tips on surviving the festive period.
