Learning and development leaders want to improve performance, while providers are willing to take their cash. So why isn't everybody happy?

On this week's GoodPractice Podcast: Owen, Gemma and Ross D discuss the latest research from Towards Maturity, showing that only 60% of L&D leaders believe that they have a grasp on the critical questions they need to ask providers. What are the knowledge gaps that need to be filled? And what responsibility do providers have to overcome this challenge?
