This series of reports challenges tried and tested models of insight and diagnosis, learning styles and other such approaches, to build fresh insight for L&D.

These reports, written with key experts, allows us to tap into the insight potential of new areas. The intention is that this will help build the capability which helps L&D build its role at the centre of organisational learning. These new insights are critical, in our view, to developing curiosity, the driving behaviour of L&D professionals.

Part 2: Cognition, decision and expertise

This report, written with Dr Adrian P Banks of the University of Surrey, addresses cognition, decision-making and the role of expertise and professional judgement.
