“When NASA launches a satellite to the moon, they do not simply aim the rocket, fire it off, and forget about it. The odds of hitting the target would be one in a million. Instead, they constantly monitor the flight path and make mid-course corrections to ensure that the objective is met. Learning and development need analogous tracking and course correction processes to ensure that educational programs achieve their targeted rates of return. Participants can’t be simply shot back into the workplace to pursue their own flight paths. They need ongoing support to help them stay on course and hit the target.” Wick et al., 2006
