Learning organizations are always under pressure to produce more with less. In addition, they need to keep up with the fast-paced changes that happen at all levels, including the addition of new products and technology. A learning organization also needs to prove its worth by demonstrating measurable results. Finally, they play an important role in ensuring a fully trained workforce. All of this is difficult to accomplish unless the leader of the learning organization has assumed the position of learning leader and takes a seat at the table where the organization develops its strategies and plans.
Taking any learning organization to the next level requires putting in place the systems and processes that produce the best results quickly and within budget. Getting a team with the right skills and getting them all on the same page is a constant challenge and needs to be worked on in a systematic and continuous improvement way.
For new or developing learning leaders, there is a challenge of getting their voices heard and establishing the credibility required to make it happen. Part of this challenge is to learn the language of learning and development as well as the language of business which is money.
In this webinar, all of these issues are discussed and a roadmap for improvement is laid out. The webinar includes a detailed assessment of finding quick hits that can make a big difference in a short period of time.
