Data and Measurement
Business leaders expect learning efforts to deliver impactful results while minimizing disruptions to key processes. They expect performance to improve—not for learning to become more effective—and for learning practitioners to demonstrate results for learning. They also expect L&D to seamlessly integrate learning into business activities while effectively minimizing the use of available resources. Because of this, learning practitioners are entering a brave new eLearning world full of creativity and opportunities to drive integrative business value.
In this session, you’ll explore how L&D is rapidly moving toward Lean learning. Lean is about creating processes that reduce human effort, process time, costs, and defects, compared to traditional systems. This approach offers L&D a leading role and opportunities to drive change and improve operational performance. This session will share strategies you can use yourself and with your team to become Lean, bringing together results, efficiencies, and effectiveness. The strategies you’ll learn will make your business leaders take notice and see you as a valued business partner.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to develop seamless, integrative learning initiatives by leveraging existing learning interactions and technologies
- Ways to reduce learning cycle time by minimizing process disruption, utilizing real-time eLearning approaches
- Strategies for creating valued business relationships through tangible results, and for connecting and partnering with related business activities to deliver targeted learning results
