Nestlé Purina PetCare created a top-manager think-tank to redesign their future by asking, “What could the business look like?” and “How could it expand into the next millennium?” Employees needed to learn how and when to question the processes, products, or people procedures that they were a part of, which led to a two-day training session that not only had to integrate into the current activities of the organization, but had to change mindset and behavior. Designing the right intervention in an already innovative and successful organization required partnering with an external learning provider to undertake this complex company-wide initiative, but partnering with an outside learning provider for a long time brings about its own challenges. Learn how partner successfully while still remaining partners.

In this case-study session, you’ll learn how Nestlé Purina PetCare partnered with Eagle’s Flight Creative Training Excellence to design, develop, and facilitate a company- and nation-wide training program for 7,000 employees in headquarters, field, and factory environments. You’ll learn the process for discovering the organizational learning barriers and enablers, and how to use this information to create a learning solution that fits your organization’s needs and addresses your corporate mandate. This program won the 2011 Stevie Award for Eagle’s Flight.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to understand and address your executives’ corporate mandate for learning needs
  • How to identify the barriers and enablers to learning within your organization as they directly relate to the learning initiative
  • How to address these barriers and enablers to overcome perceptions and create a successful learning solution
  • How to effectively partner with a learning provider
