Not only does it provide significantly more detail than others on topics like business fundamentals, strategic alignment, governance and the business case for learning, it describes in detail how to create a business plan for learning, including a 25-page sample plan. It also breaks new ground by applying economics to learning to answer questions about program selection, size and duration, as well as the effects of scale on cost. The book contains over 160 tables and figures to clearly illustrate the concepts, some of which are available online as templates.
