But why does L&D matter? Learning and development is critical to any organization. The person or people that make up your L&D department have one of the toughest jobs within the organization due to the fact that they are responsible for taking concepts, thoughts and ideas from the dreamers and visionaries and translate them so that everyone else can understand, relate and put those dreams into action. Beyond that, L&D is also responsible for equipping staff with the right skills and tools for any given job. L&D managers are truly a “jack of all trades.”
