This chapter discusses and explores a number of critical issues related to training, development and learning (TDL). It does this by highlighting the differ­ences between the terms, reflecting on older, more classical approaches to training versus more contemporary and recent trends that are more situation­ or context-specific. Such context-specificity means that the older approaches to training, although useful, have to be rethought. More recent trends in global organizations such as technological advances, human expectations of what constitutes a valuable job, organizational expectations related to capabilities that match strategic business needs, and increased social interaction, have meant that the older approaches are now less valuable.
