 ATDps: September 2016 Chapter Meeting

   Best Practice Sharing: Managing Learning Programs 

This chapter meeting will focus on the Managing Learning Programs pillar of ATD's competency model.

Understanding the current and evolving role of learning is critical for the successful learning manager. A learning professional is required to provide strategic leadership and vision, develop and implement training programs and measure their success.

This interactive session will provide a forum for members to discuss best practices around how to manage learning programs that are aligned with business objectives and strategies by establishing a vision, gaining executive support, developing action plans, and managing external requirements, all while staying on time and on budget. By understanding how the learning function can best add value within an organization, you’ll walk away with some best practices to set you up for future success as a learning professional.

After the session, participants will have a better understanding of how to:

• Create a compelling picture of the learning function, how it improves business performance and enables execution of organizational strategy

• Partner with business leaders to improve performance through learning.

• Leverage needs assessment methodologies, learning and information systems.

• Run the learning function like a business by turning strategies into action plans while dealing with real-life business constraints.
