Wednesday, February 10 | 12:00 – 12:45 p.m. E.T.

Leading learning transformation begins with identifying learner and business expectations. There are many common learning assessment models – such as Kirkpatrick, Philips and Brinkerhoff among others – to measure learning impact. However, to successfully measure learning impact or justify an organization’s training investments, it is important to understand that there is no one recipe for successful training.

During this talk, Marika Kotola, executive advisor from Sovelto in Finland, and Sharon Oosterberg, business development manager from CTU Training Solutions in South Africa, will share their knowledge and experience on the key elements that influence the training strategy and measurement of learning impact.

This interactive session will provide easy-to-understand insights on:

  • Identifying learning and business expectations.
  • Leading transformation in a constantly changing environment.
  • Enabling continuous learning for remote workers.
  • Instilling a digital mindset.
