Bridging the domains of strategy, organizational design, and innovation, Roland Deiser makes a compelling argument about the importance of integrating novel ways of continuous learning into the very core of the DNA of an organization. With a fresh approach supported through groundbreaking case material, he turns the traditional view of corporate learning upside down and redefines it as the core engine of “strategic competence.” Instead of aligning learning processes with business needs, he argues that smart organizations need to drive their entire business as a learning process, so they can harvest the learning and innovation potential that is inherent in their everyday business activities. As such, the practice of learning must reframe its identity and reach way beyond its traditional home of people development. In this session, Roland will present the cornerstones of his framework that puts corporate learning center stage as a core leadership practice that is critical for the value generating process of every organization.
