EXPOA201 Journey to Extraordinary – Lessons in Skills-based Learning Techniques

10:10 AM - 10:40 AM PT
Thursday, October 27

Tracks: Management & Strategy

Series: Live from DevLearn

Extraordinary outcomes can happen when companies invest in their people. In this session, we address how learning and development can move from just implementing an organization’s strategy to helping drive it.

By putting an organization’s people at the heart of everything we do, we can not only increase internal skills and capability but also ensure our people are confident and capable and that they have the ability to drive the future direction of the organization.

Through the session, we’ll explore:

  • How L&D can help drive organizational strategy, using skills
  • The right mix of learning tools to support the skills journey
  • How to map skills and capabilities to strategy
  • The results of an internal project to map the skills and capabilities of Learning Pool’s 450+ employees to our wider strategy
