Micro learning, or the advantages of slapping a label on good ideas.

This week on #TheGPPodcast, Owen Ferguson, James McLuckie and Ross Garner discuss ‘micro learning’. According to Donald Taylor’s 2016 L&D Global Sentiment Survey, micro learning was set to be a hot topic over the past year. But has it had an impact on our industry or is it just another in a long line of fads?
