How will your company adapt to an every changing and evolving business world? Are you ready for what the next 10-20 years has in store? Are you putting your best resources forward to ensure you achieve your goals as set in your strategic planning sessions? Are you repositioning for the future?
This workshop will explore key strategies to ensuring growth and prosperity in the NEW yet still competitive business world. This webcast will take a page from the popular SMART model of goal setting and Project Management and demonstrate the SMARTEST way to achieve results. It will also introduce methods and strategies for achieving excellence when it comes to staffing solutions and overall company leadership.
Triumph Group had a strategic initiative to transform their company into a learning organization but had to overcome the challenges of providing training that sticks without disrupting production. Through a blended learning initiative, Triumph University launched several Skillsoft assets to complement their live training experiences and extend learning beyond the classroom. As a solution, Triumph University launched its new Certificate Program Model in April 2012 featuring Skillport and an elearning catalog. This strategy has increased the expectation for growth and transformed the way employees learn all across the globe. Session attendees will understand the rationale for this pilot and how value can be justified in their own organizations.
Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.
Gamification is one of the hottest trends in learning and development. Is it just a buzzword or a trend as one leading expert argues, or does it offer richer, more interactive, and more effective ways to develop people? Decide for yourself after attending this session. Dr. Robert Becker will cover the why, when and how of gamification, focusing on the transformation of traditional or legacy courseware into more engaging game-based learning. You will not learn how to design video games in this session, but you will learn how to gamify your instructional design if the gamification of training is right for you.
Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning? We believe that effective use of the flipped learning model can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs. Participants in this session will examine the flipped classroom model, learn how to build one, and hear case studies of businesses that are now delivering in this new model.
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Informal Learning has become all the rage over the past 5 years in the Learning and Development industry. As we’ve taken a closer look at this powerful discipline we’ve learned that Informal learning can actually be “formalized”, tracked, measured, and implemented through Performance Support. This session will address the methodologies behind designing, implementing, and maintaining effective Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it is now, more than ever, all around us!
The Millennial generation learners are rapidly growing in numbers and forcing significant organizational change. They are impatient, unimpressed with hierarchy, and want to be heard. They have grown up with Google, and are accustomed to “instant gratification.” Consequently, it is critical to evolve our learning platforms to meet their learning needs as they become an increasingly important part of our workforce. Are you really ready for them? Are your learning platforms designed to serve them? This session will outline:
The essential expectations of this new generation of learners
How we must evolve our training approach to address this change
What learning functionality addresses their needs and expectation
How phrases like data analytics, contextual information, and adaptive outreach become just as important to the learning community as they've become to marketing and sales
How business performance is redefined and learning's role is re-evaluated
In 2013, the landscape for enterprise learning solutions is incredibly fluid and fast-paced. The trends that are driving technology everywhere — data, mobile, cloud, social — also apply to learning. How are these trends changing the learning and HR community? What are the opportunities that you should focus on first?
In this webinar titled “Next Generation Learning”, Steve Parker, SPHR will highlight five ideas that your learning strategy must address, including:
Best practices for process and technology integration
Mobile learning to drive pervasive employee development
Rapid content development for contextual learning
Extending learning to customers and distributors to build relationships and mindshare
Learning management systems (LMS) are designed to enroll learners into courses and learning events and track their progress. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Some systems have become so powerful and feature rich that they can be used to do much more, allowing you to use LMS technology to meet other business needs.
Join Richard Nantel. VP, Enterprise Learning Solutions at Blatant Media, for fast-paced, hands-on presentation. He won’t bore you with a bunch of slides. Instead, he’ll focus on hands-on demonstrations of ways a learning management system can improve your workplace processes and culture. (See the detailed session description for partial list of the cool things we’ll cover.)
“Creating a high-performance culture” – as learning and talent management professionals, this is something we hear about often. But what is the best way to achieve this?
Through the alignment of learning and performance processes including cascading goals, linking personal goals to organizational goals, learning and talent management leaders can communicate required competencies and identify potential skill gaps. Learning priorities are then based on performance goals and from identified skill and competency gaps a personalized learning path can be created that provides tailored development linking back to performance goals.
Sound like talent management Nirvana? Not sure where to start? It’s more attainable than you think. Join us as we discuss how your people and your organization can benefit by connecting performance and learning to create a high-performance culture. During this webinar we will discuss how you can:
Connect learning and talent processes to tie learning to goals and performance
Leverage Talent Expansion technologies to cascade goals throughout the organization, provide contextual learning and give people the tools they need to be great at their jobs
Set and measure learning and talent management results with integrated analytics
