208 Ten Hidden Secrets of Top-performing International L&D Teams

1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, September 30



Accelerated change, moving technologies, globally diverse audiences, increasing demand. We’ve been talking about these and other pressures that senior L&D leaders face for decades. The trouble is that the pressures are not going away. Today’s L&D leaders must align learning to needs, move quickly to improve performance, and add value. They are increasingly looking to technology to help.

In this highly interactive session, you will learn what actually works and what doesn’t. Our research reaches out to over 45 nations for 10 years, but this will be the first time any of the practical findings have been presented in the United States. You will take a fresh look at the hard evidence from over 17,000 learners and 3,500 international L&D leaders. You will learn the strategies of the top-performing L&D teams around the globe and see how they are improving productivity, increasing engagement, enhancing agility, AND improving efficiency.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The critical importance of having an evidence-driven rather than a technology-driven learning strategy
  • About evidence of bottom-line business impacts that will blow the minds of your senior stakeholders
  • Direct insights from learners that will change your thinking forever
  • How your strategy really compares with your top-performing peers in the rest of the world
