713 Learning Ecosystem: Modernize Today; Why Wait?

1:45 PM - 2:45 PM ET
Tuesday, November 8

Room: Coronado A

Everyone has a learning ecosystem. The problem is that process, technology, and people are working together to simplify the consumption of learning and training by the learner.

Most organizations look at tools and how tools will be used to solve problems. But impact should be the focus—and how the combination of tools can impact the business and, most importantly, the learner. Everyone needs an LMS, right? Now you also need a tool to handle skills alignment; how about an LXP? Maybe reporting is now an issue because learners are chasing down all the activities in multiple systems that form a disconnected ecosystem.

Are you interested in modernizing the way you use learning and talent technology?

In this session, we will reveal the keys to using a learning ecosystem to develop organizational talent. You will gain a competitive advantage by looking at multiple tools, most of which will already be in place to harness power of your people. The key to success is alignment of business goals and defining impact while enabling the right user experience, content, administration, technology, process, data, and reporting. Simplify the experience and increase engagement and adoption. This does not need to be complicated, but you do need to understand your systems’ capabilities and the alignment of these tools to real business impact.

This session will help you gain clarity as you focus on impact, not tools, and begin to look at your learning and talent technology differently. If you are interested in modernizing your learning ecosystem, join us for a collaborative discussion filled with real-world customer stories about how the proper use of learning ecosystem changed the way they developed their people for the future of their business.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Understand your own learning ecosystem and enable a user experience that drives learner adoption
  • Align content to the right delivery experience
  • Simplify administration and manage technology to enhance the learning experience
  • Refine and develop processes to engage your entire team in the people-development process
  • Set up data management and identify key reports and dashboards so you gain the most value from your investment
