Monday training links and questions to consider

A few training-related questions to think about this afternoon:

Is there a missing link in your management training program? Does outsourcing employee training help us focus on the bottom line? How do you handle obstacles in business? Can “key employee” incentives be dangerous? Did corporations forget what fuels economies?

Below are a few great posts from across the blogosphere to spur discussion and decide for yourself:
