When Johnson & Johnson adopted a three-tier model for the finance function, a major transformation effort was required. J&J historically operated with consumer products, medical devices and pharmaceutical products as separate business units in 70+ countries.  The shift to a shared service required transformation and standardization that impacted people, processes, and organizational structure, enabled by new technologies.  This change also presents issues from a talent perspective — and the Learning & Development function has played a key role in driving new skills, interactions and how finance professionals learn.
Join this interactive and engaging webinar to explore how:
  • Neuroscience findings were leveraged to accelerate the learning process
  • External benchmarking supported the business case for learning investments
  • Blended learning enabled an “anytime, anywhere” approach to on-demand access for a global roll-out
  • Curriculum design addressed both current and future state for the finance function
  • Investments in learning have been rationalized to align with key business priorities.
