Embracing Disruption: How One Multinational is Changing its Approach to Learning
Digital disruption and flatter workplace organizations are changing employee expectations regarding corporate learning. Organizations must take advantage of the opportunities created by these changes and align existing organizational expertise to them in order to fulfill business objectives. In this session, we’ll take you with us on our journey from tactical learning solution providers to strategic business partners focused on driving company performance. We’ll discuss how Hewlett Packard Enterprise has embraced the consumerization of learning and how we’re changing both our infrastructure and culture to exceed employee expectations for learning and drive company performance.
Key takeaways will include:
- An understanding of how one multinational is approaching significant disruptions and the consumerization of learning.
- Practical suggestions for what’s worked and what hasn’t yet.
- A roadmap for navigating the necessary transition from formal training provider to integrated talent and performance partner.
