Purpose – Reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – Learning is not always about the big things. Learning something which could ultimately be vital to a career or a business, or both, does not always have to be about the strategic changes in direction which learning organizations can assess, quantify, measure and score. Sometimes it only takes a tweak – maybe resulting from a CEO's epiphany in realizing that being nice to the employees can bring untold benefits. Practical implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to digest format.
