More credibility needed.

Dear Editor,

The dilemma addressed by agony aunt Isobel Rimmer in last month's TJ shows, once again, the importance of L&D functions increasing their credibility within organisations.

As Dave so rightly points out, recession is an excuse (as if another were needed!) for organisations to cut their training budgets in a short-sighted attempt to save money. L&D practitioners must have enough credibility to be able to present a convincing case to senior managers for continuing to invest in the development of their people in tough times.

This then has the knock-on effect of improving attendances on training courses!
