We’re all familiar with the saying “The only constant is change,” but this has never been as true for business as it is today—nor have the penalties for companies who fail to learn and adapt been as high.

Learning to Succeed argues that an integrated model for corporate education—one that links development programs with strategic goals—is critical to building agile and resilient learning organizations that will survive in the fast-evolving business landscape.

For companies ready to embrace what it means to be a learning organization, to welcome the CLO to the C-suite, to tightly and continuously weave strategy and learning into the fabric of their businesses, the opportunities are limitless. Complete with practical guidelines and illuminating case studies, Learning to Succeed puts you on the path to long-term success.

“In a world like today’s, well-trained and effective leaders often make the difference between unlocked potential and unrealized promise. This book extends beyond traditional recommendations for corporate learning and development, masterfully demystifying the complex interrelationship among strategy, culture, people, and change that has proved critical during my career at Dow. Jason Wingard provides simple solutions and practical examples that will motivate today's managers to take action and equip them with the tools they need for impactful leadership.” —Andrew N. Liveris, Chairman and CEO, The Dow Chemical Company

“In today’s turbulent market environment, the central question is: Are you learning to succeed, or are you just learning to cope? Jason compellingly makes the case for focusing on execution and building the return on investment benefits that will assure your competitive advantage. If you want to learn to succeed, dig into this terrific book.” —Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO, Johnson & Johnson

“I strongly believe that the right calibration of culture, learning, and development can empower and unlock the potential of your teams. Jason’s book meticulously details the importance of that approach, bolstering his arguments with concrete examples of how to effect change for positive results.” —Rajeev Suri, President and CEO, Nokia
