402 Spark Joy: Demonstrate L&D’s Value As You Map Learning Journeys

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET
Tuesday, December 5

Do you feel that your organization’s learning experiences are cluttered, disorganized, and often out of date? Do you find that there are so many places to look for files before you can even find what needs to be updated? Do you wish you could leverage change champions for the cleanup? Do you often do the cleanup and implementation but struggle in communicating to the business the value and heavy lifting required from your team?

Let’s explore applicable strategies and practical templates that will spark joy for the business, learners, and your team. We’ll delve into strategies that will help you not only prove value to the business but also improve your learners’ experience—and examine how available training content can be illustrated through a master roll-up for business leaders to see the value your team is providing.

You will learn how to use already available data to prove your value and discuss how to develop learning journeys even in a fast-paced environment through a now, next, and later approach. We will look at real-life examples in how to identify and build learning journeys—and how to pivot when met with blockers.

Finally, we will walk through a solution and how the business responded. You’ll take away resources and templates that will help you organize your current training and help audit training to create a sustainable strategy, sparking joy in every roadmap.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Organize current training for a more sustainable auditing process in the future
  • Illustrate readily available assets to the business through a master roll-up
  • Develop a learning journey through a now, next, and later approach
  • Use provided resources and templates when implementing your team’s business strategy
