Impact! Creating a New Playbook for L&D In The Digital Age

The digital age has created a massive increase in the speed and complexity of business, fundamentally changing the workplace and altering how we get work done. As new technology is integrated, workers at all levels are needing to reskill much faster and navigate more complex systems and processes. The corporate learning function is in a unique position to lead the transformation required in workplace learning, but first it must transform how it operates. The key driver behind the need for this transformation can be seen in how quickly the world of work is changing. It's beyond time for the corporate learning organization to reorient itself for the digital age and take a more proactive role in enabling business transformation. We are at an inflection point requiring a wholesale reevaluation of our structure, our tools, our capabilities, and the learning business model. It’s now time to radically reimagine corporate learning for our changing world of work. Join us for a refreshing new look at how L&D is well positioned to provide significant impact on business and the workforce during this massive job transformation.

Key Takeaways:

-- Learn about the 3 Forces of Change driving the digital age

-- Learn about L&D's 5 imperatives for the digital age

-- Learn how recalibrating L&D's impact areas will help transform the workplace

In her research, Jacque found that organizations with exceptional learning cultures followed a five-step process: 1) develop a road map 2) align with strategic partners 3) create an anchor program 3) assess results and 5) celebrate and share success to create exceptional learning cultures.
