Management Solutions Forum
Monday, March 25
Management of the learning function can take many forms; depending on the size of the organization and its needs, the role can involve both tactical efforts and input on guiding the organizational learning strategy. Modern organizations are dynamic, and to stay relevant and successful they must continually adjust their strategies. To support this need for business agility, L&D must be able to act on each shift and ensure employees have the knowledge and skills they need to support the business at every level.
The Management Solutions Forum is set to provide you the knowledge to succeed in a constantly changing business environment. Learn with and through your peers how to overcome the biggest challenges learning leaders face today, how best to align learning solutions with the business, how to build and lead a learning team, and how to show the value of L&D efforts.
