I attended the learning technologies conference this week in London. Another great conference organised by Don Taylor. (with his tie off!)
Here are some reflections and key points that I have taken away from the session run by Charles Jennings.
When working is learning then learning is working
The seller sets the price but the buyer/stakeholder determines the value. People have different views of what value is.
For L&D, performance consulting yields the greatest value
If HR and L&D strategy are aligned to business objectives then there will be a 250% increase in business performance
When designing, analysis is key
It’s all about trust when working with managers
Understand business challenges and respond quickly. This reminds me of Mark Oelhert‘s quotes from the conference in January. “Think big, start small, move fast”
Workforce development is too important to be left to L&D alone. Engage managers in the journey. Build strong collaborative partnerships and influence strategies and direction
The most significant learning experiences happen outside of the formal environment
L&D professionals need to understand the balance sheet, understand business, understand the technology and use performance consulting skills
