Building a Smarter Learning Ecosystem
L&D doesn’t own workplace learning. WHAT?!?! Every organization is a complex ecosystem with a multitude of elements. Unfortunately, many L&D teams fail to take a holistic approach. Instead, they focus on their sphere of influence, which often revolves around formal training. Employees are left to struggle with mixed messages and contradictory priorities. This lessens the perceived value of L&D, stifles employee potential and hinders long-term business growth.
In this session, we’ll explore the components of a modern learning ecosystem. We’ll demonstrate how these components work together to empower employees and enable performance improvement. We’ll map popular L&D tactics, such as eLearning and performance support, to this framework. We’ll discuss challenges L&D may encounter when working to evolve a learning ecosystem. You’ll walk away with practical ideas that will help you start shifting your approach to learning so that you can meet the needs of today’s employees.
