This tool introduces you to four practical and flexible analytical techniques that can be used to help you to identify and analyse the impact of influencing factors on your organisation and its approach to L&D and training.
These techniques provide a structured approach to gathering and analysing information about factors impacting on organisations. They provide a recognised way of helping you to make sense of the distinctive features of your organisation and the external environment with which it interacts.
Each technique has a different focus and emphasis, so you can combine techniques or choose a particular technique to suit the requirements of your organisation and its current L&D position.
Who this tool is for:
This tool is particularly aimed at those who are new to L&D and training or who have not previously developed or reviewed L&D policies and practices.
This tool will help you to:
- Use PESTLE, SWOT, the McKinsey 7 S Framework and stakeholder analysis to inform L&D policy and practice
- Identify the characteristics and limitations of each of these techniques
- Select the most appropriate analytical tool to suit your organisation and its L&D needs.
