Speaker: David Mallon, Learning Analyst, Bersin & Associates
Dynamic trends are shaping big changes in learning in the workplace. New highly flexible internal communications, social networking, knowledge portals and mobile devices enable unprecedented interconnectedness and mobility. At the same time, budget limitations, changing strategic priorities and shifting demographics have left many organizations with a talent shortage and moved them to recognize that key overall performance outcomes such as productivity, customer service, and cost control all rely on strengthening the organization’s collective ability and will to learn.
Learning and Development is at a crossroads, prompting questions about what’s required structurally to advance organizational learning, deep specialization and talent mobility. David Mallon will share highlights from Bersin & Associates’ 2011 study on The High-Impact Learning Organization. He will provide examples of large, complex organizations, including Deloitte, IBM, Thomson Reuters Knowledge, that are driving significant operational improvements with innovative approaches to employee learning. This Town Hall-style presentation will encourage questions and discussion.
Participants will gain an updated understanding of: capability development and integrated talent management, continuous learning, mobile learning, virtual classrooms and evolution of learning outsourcing.
