As the Mad-Hatter said to Alice (in Alice in Wonderland), "if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there."  With or without the Mad-Hatter we know the basic truth of this statement.  Even without such a strategy, organizations though haven't stood still.  They have spent monies, allocated resources, and invested time.  However, without a clear and defined organizational learning strategy, organizations find themselves spending too much time, money and resources to get too little result.  Significant investments in learning technologies are wasted.  Prepared and motivated learning professionals are under-utilized. The workforce is left under-prepared and supported.  And, as a result the organization is unable to fulfill it's promise to customers and shareholders, clients and supporters.  This is truly an example of the 'ready-fire-aim' syndrome.

Having advised major public and private organizations on learning strategy for over 30 years, I've had my share of successes and failures.  In this session, I will share with you the nine myths/truths I've distilled from these experiences, covering the spectrum from vision to implementation to change.  And, from developing a learning strategy with a blank-slate to taking what you already have done and are doing to form a strategy that can be more effective.
The key objective of this webinar is to challenge all of us to re-think what we know and have done. So, please come prepared to share as well as listen.  This is an opportunity to together evolve an approach for developing organizational learning strategy based on our collective experience and learning.  I'm looking forward to learning with you!
