We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Session Focus: Beyond In-Person Training: Finding New Ways to Add Value
Case Study: Douglas Dynamic

Hero story arc: our protagonist (DD’s L&D department, and likely you the audience member) just experienced a collapse in demand for your most recognized product (in-person ILT). How did our protagonist pivot to not only avoid being unnecessary but actually became more valuable?

What we will explore together :
Distinguish what we do (activities) from what adds value (our purpose; OD wheel):

  • Stop doing activities that no longer add value (examples: in-person training, employee experience survey)
  • Leverage relationships to discover needs (examples: helping IT with choosing virtual tool)
  • Rapidly innovate to serve customer needs (examples: upskilling with tech skills, remote working, communicating & recognizing employees)


ELE’s Learning Circle will be ideating Retooling Talent Development for the New Normal.

  • How Do We in L&D Add Unexpected Value?
  • Why does it matter?
