SMM102 Developing a Microlearning Strategy to Drive Big Company Impact
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Tuesday, March 26
Expo Hall: Management & Measurement Stage
Learning practitioners struggle to quickly identify learning opportunities and build impactful programs that connect to business objectives and drive employee engagement. Instead of insisting on getting to root causes of organizational challenges, you may be living in a reactive training mode—prescribing blanket learning solutions when you should be targeting critical skill sets and mindsets that employees need to be successful.
In this session, you will make the connection between changing workplace dynamics and the need for a microlearning strategy to target critical employee skill sets. You’ll identify ways in which your company might implement a microlearning strategy, and you’ll take a deep dive into several examples of how to demonstrate learning impact applied to organizational goals.
In this session, you will learn:
- How a microlearning strategy is purpose-built for driving connection between learning initiatives and business priorities
- About the three-step process of a microlearning strategy
- How to shift from reactive to proactive and strategic learning mode
- About seven areas of learning impact tied to organizational goals
Managers and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.)
