An Undeniable Strategy for Growth

Posted by Nicole Vierzba on Thu, Jul 28, 2011

Looking to the latter half of 2011, there is one workplace trend that many employers are looking toward implementing – a comprehensive workplace learning strategy. 

The August Executive Next Practices forum will focus on ways which employers can create learning organizations capable of adapting and excelling during a turbulent marketplace. 

Topics & features for these highly collaborative sessions in Los Angeles and Orange County will include:
 The building the link between Learning & Strategy:  why your existing business strategy is at risk without a supportive learning initiative
 The fallacy of technology based learning:  why some e-learning may be inappropriate for your business
 New ways to measure the ROA and ROI of your training investment
 The globalization of learning:  adapting methods that translate across cultures and languages
 Best practice and case studies from organizations including Farmers Insurance, Mimi’s Café, Bank of America, Employers Group, and Kinecta

Dr. Mark Allen
Practitioner Faculty of Pepperdine Organization Theory and Management
