LS603 Lean, Mean Creative Machine: Creating Your Rapid eLearning Process
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, March 17
Management and Strategy
Your company is growing fast. Your team has expanded way beyond the small, intimate group it once was. Demands are increasing. Development tools are changing. The new people have to be brought up to speed, now. And your industry is heavily regulated, so it has to be right. How do you maintain the independent spirit that made your company successful and still get all the work done?
In this session, you will learn the strategies and tools WestJet’s learning and development team developed to solve this problem. You will learn specific strategies you can take home and implement right away, such as breaking the silos, making time for collaboration, getting it right the first time, strategies to speed up development, leveraging talent, and making the most of all team members.
In this session, you will learn:
- To identify key ways to increase collaboration with colleagues and clients on eLearning projects
- To develop key strategies to assist your team in developing high quality eLearning quickly and consistently
- To identify ways to expand the skillsets of your team members and utilize each member to their fullest capacity
- How to break down the barriers and silos that have been built up for years
