Interactive Breakout Session BUS37
Business EDUCA: Designing Rapid Solutions to Emerging Business Problems
Date Thursday, Dec 7 Time – Room Tiergarten
The key to successful change is people. In uncertain times, learning takes on new significance in terms of helping people to adapt to new roles or new ways of working and giving them the skills they need to be successful. Getting learning right at these times can give organisations and institutions an enormous competitive advantage, enabling them to be agile and adapt to new situations quickly.
So what does ‘right’ look like - and how can we as learning and development professionals evaluate the impact of learning offerings? How should we spend budget in a world full of data? How can we align key performance indicators with our organisations’ goals?
This interactive session will cover how to identify threats, problems and opportunities and how to design learning solutions that will enable a rapid and effective response. You will be expected to be active and will be encouraged to share experiences and help your colleagues with potential solutions through a series of activities.
