Mass Chapter ASTD Meeting

Sponsored by Organizational Learning and Development Program

The Strategic Value of Learning in the Global War for Talent

Keynote speaker: David Wilkins, Vice President of Taleo Research

For years, learning professionals, like most of their HR colleagues, have been looking for a seat "at the table."  And for years, they have had very little success in getting into the room, let alone grabbing a seat. Fortunately, the opportunity has never been better: a combination of demographic, technological, cultural, and economic changes are increasing the strategic importance of talent and learning practices and more importantly, the "perceived" importance among CEO's and senior executives. In this session, we'll talk about the underlying drivers of this change, the evidence that this is now a "top of mind" priority among senior leaders, and some ways that you can capitalize on these trends to increase the business impact and strategic relevance of your teams.
