This Event is in Association with the Irish Institute of Training and Development (IITD)
The field of Learning & Development (L&D) is under pressure. L&D professionals are regularly asked to deliver more, within shorter timescales, yet often find their work under valued by others in the organization. What is the source of this pressure, and how should the L&D profession react?
Join Donald H Taylor, chair of the Learning and Performance Institute, as he explores the current drivers for change today and describes how a combination of skills, attitude and technology can put L&D back in the driving seat.
Donald will outline key major trends affecting the world of business and learning and explain the tough decision that individual L&D professionals need to make – to change their work and become a high-impact part of the business, or to be side-lined.
• “Why am I always so busy?” – tackling L&D’s biggest problem
• Moving L&D from order-taker to business partner
• Showing the impact of L&D – using analytics and understanding value
• Why writing a course should always be the last resort
• Preparing for a future of L&D very different to today
