There are many books, presentations, and consultants that focus on LMS implementation, but what you do after implementation can make the difference between simply putting a new system in place and shaping a learning ecosystem that becomes part of corporate culture, aligning compliance, talent development, and business goals. Failure to identify tools to evaluate the health of your learning infrastructure often leads to student abandonment and limits the value of L&D.
This session will cover the real-world keys to successful system implementation. Using case studies from a number of industries, you will see what happens in year two, three, and beyond to nurture an environment where learning and performance support are embedded into users’ daily lives. Topics will include: painting a vision of your learning ecosystem; leveraging system integration to streamline training; using xAPI and other tools to evaluate training content; how to know when you’ve outgrown your current systems; creating a learning system governance model; and managing learning projects, team members, and expectations.

Topic: Each person seems to have a personal definition of competency. And each company seems to have their own competency program structure, some that are quite complex. There are many stories of frustration about competency program implementation.
Organizational leaders rebel at the amount of time taken to perform assessments, supervisors get frustrated determining who can really perform the work and wonder about the program’s value, and employees struggle to reach vague definitions of achievement.
Kent Nuttall presents a strategy to create competence and qualification structures that are simple while still differentiating personnel achievements. Competence and qualification programs, built on work outputs with simple structures, better clarify employee expectations and guide employee development strategies.
