Moderated by Learning and Performance Institute’s Chairman, Donald H Taylor, the event combined practical insights from sixteen CERTPOINT client speakers with high level thought leadership from industry experts Brandon Hall, Charles Jennings and Mike Morrison.
The big theme dominating the two days was the pace of change in business today and in learning in particular.
Brandon Hall urged everyone to get on the escalator of experimentation – start big or start small – but start! And he pointed out that tomorrow’s learning leaders, already emerging, are sharp and far more business focused that their predecessors.
Charles Jennings highlighted a shift in the responsibilities in learning and development today from focusing on “what they know to know how” – the move from L&D as the source of knowledge to the facilitator of conversation and curator of information.
Mike Morrison drew on his ten years’ of experience as Dean of Toyota University to emphasize the positive side of change. With every part of business undergoing change L&D has a great opportunity to play a strategic role in helping organizations adapt, survive and thrive.
