Beyond the Hype; The "Virtual" Association
Every professional has had the experience. We have a great time at the annual meeting. We talk with colleagues from around the country that we saw last year. We promise to stay in touch. Then we go home, to not communicate again for another twelve months.
Blended Learning: What Does It Take?
This program for chief learning officers and other senior learning professionals focuses on critical success factors in deploying blended learning programs. It is suitable for meeting events focused on learning.
Creating Communities of Practice
Communities of practice are being used by forward thinking organizations to support informal learning, create innovative solutions, and transfer the tacit knowledge of experts to a new generation of workers. Some have obtained tens of millions of dollars in additional revenue as a result.
Increasing Speed to Proficiency
"Last year, graduates of our new hire program generated an average of $40M/year in revenue - the equivalent of employees with nine years of experience." One of our customers just informed us that this was the result of the employee assimilation program we created for them. As you can imagine, he was really happy to be able to report this to his CEO.
Plugging the Baby Boomer Brain Drain
As baby boomers age, organizations' expertise is walking out the door and senior management is facing the impending retirement of a generation of baby boomers. Due to demographic factors, this will cause many organizations to lose a significant portion of their most experienced middle managers and talented senior professionals.
Putting the People Back into e-Learning
This program for senior managers examines the trend toward interaction, community and blended learning: what it is and why it's important. It is suitable for general meeting events.
