Enabling Change & Accelerating Growth: Critical Components of the 21st Century Learning Function
L&D, HR, and Training exist in a complex and rapidly evolving business environment in which they can no longer continue to operate with a fragmented value contribution. In order for L&D to elevate their function across a multitude of areas within their organization, they must learn to work in new ways, to partner with the business at different levels in order to increase their value contribution and to drive change and enable growth that aligns to the CEOs agenda. Other industries such as finance, IT, and project management have faced similar challenges plaguing L&D and have been able to make the shift required in order to elevate their function and provide value to their organizations. L&D, HR, and Training can successfully make the same shift by uncovering the gaps that exist within their function and using the awareness to change in order to become a true business partner. So, let’s work together to evolve our function and figure out what our value contribution is as we move forward to ensure that employees, customers and the companies they all work for are getting the most productive and successful workforce possible!
Discover the areas of impact that L&D leaders must consider for their profession, top areas for improvement and upskilling within L&D, and implications for the operating model of the L&D function.
Discover what needs to change in L&D and how to make the pivot, while learning about other industries who have successfully made the pivot to relevancy and faced similar challenges.
