Suite Synchronicity: Exploring the Relationship and Alignment between the CLO and Executive Team (2011)


Sat Dec 17 2011


Suite Synchronicity: Exploring the Relationship and Alignment between the CLO and the Executive Team

focuses on interviews with learning leaders who have successfully fostered and


sustained positive and influential learning practices and relationships at

high-performing organizations. Sponsored by SkillSoft, this report, also

examines the relationship and alignment between the chief learning officer and

the executive team from the perspective of successful executive-level learning

practitioners. The insights, experiences, and recommendations of participants


are explored to inform readers of the best practices, methodologies, and advice

for aligning the CLO with the executive team and the learning function with the

business strategy.

In several high-performing organizations, learning is a high

priority to the executive suite, due to the efforts of some very resourceful


and strategic-minded learning executives. In this report, they shared not only

the secrets of their success, but in many cases also shared failures and the

lessons learned from them. Like the CEO, these learning executives can never

forget the importance of the bottom line. For CLOs who have managed to

integrate learning into the strategic fabric of the organization, theyve done

so by ensuring that their efforts have business impact. Theyve spent the time

to understand the business, to form relationships with the right people

internally, and to align their learning programs with the business

initiatives in order to enable business impact.
