Transforming Learning And Development Leadership In The Digital Age

Course Overview

Course Introduction

Corporate learning has undergone a major shift in recent years. It has moved from traditional classroom training to customized bite-sized learning based on the immediate need of the learner. Jenny Dearborn, senior vice president and chief learning officer for SAP, and author of Data Driven: How Performance Analytics Delivers Extraordinary Sales Results, makes the case for data analytics to improve learning programs. 
In this course, you will learn about the educational process that must happen within an organization to build a learning organization and culture; the movement from role-based learning to today’s highly customized and prescriptive training; types of learning that can be used to accomplish training goals; and instructor-led vs. other learning models. You will also understand that learning needs are the same across all generations and why it is critical to look at all available data when trying to solve a problem.
