Course Description

The Role of the Manager in the Learning and Development Lifecycle

The Role of the Manager in the Learning and Development Lifecycle is  designed to enable Line Managers to understand the link between individual learning and development requests and business goals.  Andrew Mayo, a leading HR specialist, says ‘If development programmes are not clearly linked with the organisation’s business strategy, they are not adding value. They may even be destroying it’.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of The Role of the Manager in the Learning and Development Lifecycle course managers will be familiar with all stages of the learning and development lifecycle from identification of needs though to evaluation of learning.

The benefits of this workshop to the organisation and to the manager are that it would provide attendees with:

  • Clarity of thinking around how the training budget is spent and the value it generates;
  • A clearer understanding of the learning and development process and how it benefits staff;
  • Clarity in relation to the link between learning and development and increased productivity;
  • Confidence for the manager to discuss with the staff member the value to the organisation (and the team) of the learning the employee is requesting through PMDS;
  • The knowledge and understanding necessary to enable managers to evaluate the impact of learning and development in the workplace in terms of value for money, impact on productivity and return on investment.


The Role of the Manager in the Learning and Development Lifecycle course will focus on the stages in the Learning and Development Lifecycle from identifying the need through to evaluating the impact of the learning in the workplace.

Furthermore it will look at the relationship between identifying and developing skills and competencies and increased productivity.
