The Imperative for Agility in Learning and Development

With organizations using more part-time, project-based freelancers to supplement the work of permanent staff, learning and development (L&D) is going to have to be just as agile as the workforce — where speed, flexibility, and innovation are critical.

While global investment in learning and development continues to grow by double digits, the focus of that spending is shifting. What this means is that more learning will happen in teams, and on platforms where training can be delivered any time, any place, at the user’s convenience.

Join this webcast to explore how L&D is changing to meet the needs of today’s organizations and their increasingly agile workforce.

You’ll hear examples which illustrate new and different approaches to workplace learning, including:

  • How technology-supported peer learning is disrupting the old paradigm
  • Ways that L&D is being transformed and reinvented with:
    • Focused micro-learning
    • Personalized learning via chapterships
    • Technology enabled expert/peer learning
    • Project-based action learning
    • Co-opetition: more partnership in shared learning
    • The rise of agile mentorships 
  • How forward-facing companies are connecting L&D to strategy and driving business results
  • Ways analytics can be used to shape L&D priorities
