Aligning Learning Strategy to Corporate Strategy

ATD 2014 Session: W308
Lewisa Anciano | May 07, 2014 | Video

With tight budgets it is essential for the internal L&D function to prove its value. That means focusing on our programs' results: how our solutions lead to desired performance and, ultimately, organizational strategy. But our value can be more than the sum of our solutions. Through a case study, we'll explore how an internal L&D function can do more than just align to strategy—it can lead the business to it, while marketing its value along the way. Participants will interact with and be exposed to three levels of strategic planning and value communication: the three-year planning process that links L&D strategy to corporate strategy, execution of a learning solution designed to enable employees and staff to fulfill corporate strategy, and communicating the results and value-add of the L&D function through strategy execution.

The Future of Innovation: Why and How Everyone Must Innovate

ATD 2014 Session: TU215
Chris Pacione | May 06, 2014 | Video

Our concepts of what makes an innovator (eccentric genius)—and who should be innovative (leaders)—are dated and put us at risk for failing to meet the demands of our time. We are in the midst of a seismic shift, whereby the realities of global interrelations, against the backdrop of pervasive connectedness, require that everyone become more innovative. In every sector, at every tier, and at all phases of development, everyone must speak the language of innovation in order to rise to the scale and frequency of today's challenges. But how do organizations develop innovation as a core competency not just among their leaders, but among all of their people? LUMA Institute believes that teaching human-centered design is the answer. The foundational elements of this discipline—problem framing, engaging with people, generating good ideas, and rapid iteration and improvement—are what support innovative behavior. When all levels of an organization are literate in this practice, the tide of innovation rises repeatedly and predictably. This session introduces the thinking behind innovation as an essential human literacy, and takes you through a series of active exercises that demonstrate several go-to methods in support of practicing human-centered design. You will leave with: a new understanding of how everyone can learn to be innovative, immediately applicable job aids for methods covered, and a reference poster of methods and templates.
