Return on Learning: Training for High Performance at Accenture by Donald Vanthournout, Kurt Olson, John Ceisel, Andrew White, Tad Waddington, Thomas Barfield, Samir Desai, and Craig Mindrum

The in-depth, inside story of how Accenture revitalized its fabled corporate training organization in the midst of worldwide economic downturn and major marketplace change. The company did so by focusing on the “return on learning”: how Accenture’s investments in learning and knowledge management could be planned and managed to deliver measurable business advantage.

The Accenture veterans who tell this story take readers deep inside Accenture’s operations and decision making, so other professionals and companies can benefit from these experiences in using training to achieve high performance.
