"Building or Revitalizing the Learning & Development Function in Your Organization"
Whenever we attend a program on best practices (of whatever), we hear from organizations that have established and fully functioning learning and development departments. However, many of us work in organizations where the L&D function is small, recently created, or trying to revitalize itself.
At this L&OD SIG we will hear from seasoned L&D professionals who are in the position of starting or revitalizing their learning and development function. Learn the approach and strategy they are taking, the obstacles they are facing and what they are doing about them, how they are going about getting support (and the budget) for their programs and plans, etc.
We will also have ample opportunity for an interactive discussion through a question and answer period.
