    Learning and Development Today. 

    How are Learning Leaders Preparing for The Future of Learning?

    The world of corporate learning is experiencing a massive, tectonic shift. From experience design to augmented reality, consumer and digital trends have found their way into the corporate learning environment. Learner expectations are changing, technology is evolving, and learning leaders are working to adapt their strategies to meet these demands.

    ATD Chicago Chapter is pleased to announce an informative session to review these trends and learn from area F1000 learning leaders on how they are managing through and leveraging these trends.

    The CARA Group has recently completed a research study on the current state of corporate learning, and will kick off the session with a brief summary of findings. This will be followed by a panel discussion.

      What do sales, manufacturing, quality and other key departments have in common? They are all run with business discipline. This helps them to be goal focused and run effectively and efficiently which in turn increases the comfort level of the CEO in providing additional resources. L&D typically has not been run like a business which is a primary reason senior leaders often lack confidence in it and scrutinize it more closely than other departments. In this program we will explore what it means to run L&D like a business with guidance for both small and large organizations.

      Session outcomes:
      • Learn the key steps to run learning like a business.
      • Explore the process of alignment, disciplined goal setting, and reaching agreement on mutual roles and responsibilities.
      • Learn about the three types of measures and three types of reports needed to run learning like a business.
      • Explore how to manage with business discipline and provide senior leaders and program managers with the information they need.
      • Increase your business acumen and your confidence to measure, report and manage.
