TICE Virtual Conference: Developing an L&D Blueprint

Whether a structured department or a team of one, a rock star learning and development (L&D) team serves as a strategic advisor to their organization. A crucial aspect of the role of learning leaders is the ability to develop an L&D plan that builds employee capabilities to support organizational goals while fostering a positive culture for talent development and retention. This already daunting task is made more complex by the L&D function’s need to evolve in order to adapt to the changing needs of the workplace. So, where do you start and what are the key components of a strong L&D plan?

Join this TICE Virtual Conference, sponsored by Southern New Hampshire University, to discover the various factors to consider when developing an L&D plan for your organization. This half-day event aims to equip you with strategies you can use to:

  • Align your L&D plan to your organization’s goals
  • Identify internal and external resources to help you achieve your plan
  • Engage employees and appeal to the modern learner
  • Identify the skillsets you need to build a world-class training team

Join one or all four sessions to learn from experienced L&D leaders who have been instrumental in developing successful L&D plans in their organizations.
