809 Embracing Automation in Modern L&D
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 25
Automation is no longer a word that you can ignore. While it may seem reserved for manual labor and robotics, it's actually impacting every industry and market. L&D is not immune. With the constant push to do things faster, better, and cheaper, it can be felt in delivering the products and services that L&D provides. Because of that, leveraging process and task automation may become an important way to help your team remain relevant. L&D automation can take many forms, but how do you start? Since automation for the sake of automation can be destructive and cause additional friction, how do you make strategic choices about which situations it’s best suited for?
At PwC we've embraced automation in all its forms to help in our transition to a new level of digital L&D. In this session, you'll learn not only how automation can help your current organization, but also how to identify opportunities that are ripe for it. Automation is a mindset and a skill. Using real-life examples from PwC, we will discuss tools, technologies, and share how we've upskilled our workforce to not only prepare for automation, but recognize and execute on existing opportunities.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to recognize L&D automation opportunities
- How to operate simple automation tools/technologies
- How to automate simple L&D processes
- How to identify disruptive automation
