Here at Litmos, we've been talking quite a bit lately about moving "beyond buzzwords" to address the real-world modalities, methods, and technologies that shape and support modern learning, regardless of what you call them.
At the end of the day, L&D pros want to show that our efforts are driving outcomes like better employee performance, more consistent customer success, a more energized culture, and reduced risks for the company. More and more of us are working to align our learning programs with the goals of the business. As I've referenced before, the 2018 HCM Outlook by Brandon Hall Group cites that 76 percent of companies see aligning the learning strategy with the business is an important or critical priority for achieving business goals. That's a new goal for many companies and a critical element of a modern learning strategy.
I could go on and on, but rather than re-invent the wheel, please take a look at any of the following resources to get up-to-speed on this subject:
- The Down and Dirty Realities of Modern Learning (Webinar Recording)
- Moving Modern Learning Beyond Buzzwords (ATD Blog)
- 3 Critical Characteristics of Modern Learning (ATD Blog)
Hopefully you'll find some helpful points in those materials, but the real point of me posting today was to personally invite you to join in the "beyond buzzwords" conversation LIVE!
If you're attending the ATD 2018 International Conference & Expo, May 6-9 in San Diego, please mark your calendar for "Beyond Buzzwords: The Down and Dirty Realities of Modern Learning." This will be the culmination of all of the content above and the deepest dive yet into how to meet the new expectations of modern learners. You’ll find me in Room 23A on Sunday, May 6th, at 1:30PM leading this interactive session. I'd love to hear your thoughts, questions, and front-line insights when we take this show on the road!
Litmos will, of course, be on the expo floor as well, so please accept our warmest invitation to stop by Gold Sponsor Booth #1901 for a gourmet coffee, a chance to win prizes, and a chat with our learning experts. Also, be sure to attend Networking Night on May 7 aboard the USS Midway Museum. It’s an awesome event and for the third year in a row, sponsored by Litmos.
Looking forward to meeting you in person!
