Organizations are engaged in a tug of war between the IT department pulling in one direction and the employees (aka the Learners) pulling in the opposite direction. Both parties have valid reasons for their efforts, however, while the contest is in play, everyone is losing. This session will help participants address the gap between the modern learner’s expectations and the concerns and restrictions of legacy policies and technology infrastructure.
