An innovative product needs an innovative learning approach, but with multiple delivery options available, how do you decide which is best? The challenge for a team at Canadian Tire was to create awareness and maximize retention of an exciting new catalog among store employees. They wanted to create an engaging and innovative solution in-house but had limited time and resources. How did they decide on their approach, and what did they do to make it a success?

In this session, you’ll discover how Canadian Tire developed a game-based solution using in-house resources. Through exploring their approach to solving a common L&D challenge, you’ll learn how to incorporate game mechanics using your own existing resources.
