Step Up With Your Learning Strategy

A study by the National Center for Education Statistics revealed that well-designed instruction can increase learning outcomes by up to 25%. Unfortunately, it also showed that only 40% of companies believe their learning strategy is effectively measured. 

While organizations understand the value of crafting a learning strategy, many lose track of the key areas of focus. There are essentially six pillars to creating an effective learning strategy. When done right, it will help organizations to empower workers, accelerate transformation, and ultimately deliver stronger business results. 

The competitive landscape demands nothing less.

This new eBook puts the focus on the six pillars that can elevate your learning strategy and demonstrate the value and impact of your learning programs to your stakeholders.

Here’s an excerpt of the six pillars and what each means to learning organizations:

  1. Align learning with organizational goals: Develop a strategic vision, institutional goals, and key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure talent development aligns with overarching business objectives.

  2. Analyze and design curriculum for behavior change: Design learning content that translates into improved on-the-job performance.

  3. Innovate within content development: Develop immersive content using AI, games, VR, AR, interactive videos, chatbots, and more.

  4. Explore different learning delivery methods: Know your learners and understand when to use eLearning, virtual training, on-site training sessions, workshops, or events.

  5. Build an overall learning technology ecosystem: Choose one main learning platform (an LMS or LXP, for example) that integrates well with a variety of learning technologies, and you can create a strong learning ecosystem.

  6. Dive into analytics and insights: Research to unveil patterns of individual and group engagement within your training material and reveal knowledge gaps.

By following these six pillars, you can create a corporate learning strategy that’s aligned with your business goals, responsive to your learners’ needs, and adaptable to the changing market and technology trends. You can also optimize your learning budget, resources, and outcomes and demonstrate the value and impact of your learning programs to your stakeholders.

The eBook goes on to delve deeper into each of the pillars and details the steps to take in order to achieve maximum impact. From ways of designing learning content that is engaging and effective to understanding the importance of a prototype and selecting the right authoring tool and platform, the eBook leaves no stone unturned in achieving a learning strategy that ticks all the boxes. It simplifies ways for L&D managers to effectively cater to the preferences, needs, and expectations of learners. 

Learn more about learning platforms, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS) and the Learning Experience Platforms (LXP). While both systems provide extensive reporting on course numbers and effectiveness, did you know that the two systems are not exclusive and can work together? The ebook lays out steps to help you maintain and manage a robust and reliable learning platform(s) that hosts, delivers, and tracks your learning content and provides a user-friendly and intuitive learning experience for your learners.

Finally, dive into analytics and insights. Understand how to extract insights to identify and address the gaps and challenges in your learning programs.
