Workshop Session | Wednesday, June 27 | 2:50 – 3:35 p.m.
Track: Strategic Alignment

This session will discuss the importance of building the proper strategic foundation for your L&D program. Strategy will be introduced as more than “the plan,” more than the presentation and more than the meeting. Participants will learn that proper strategy design is the basis for a successful L&D framework for the entire organization. Strategy is the backbone of organizational success, employee development and retention activities. And it starts with buy-in.

What will you learn?

  • Identify key steps to obtain executive level buy-in
  • Create an actionable time table for implementation
  • Identify key areas of opportunities for their respective organization
