OK. You are a designer, developer, and L&D leader.  You do your job because you are good at writing, graphics, software, projects, or you have mastered instructional design and technologies. But you have no clue what matters in your business. Your boss says, “We want training quick and useful.” And the boss does not tell you why and how. Consequently, your learning and training programs are off-target, off-mark, and do not hit what the boss wants. Your boss is unimpressed. You are exasperated.

This is a perennial problem among L&D professionals. Somehow, we are lost in the shuffle. 

In this webinar, Ray will share his consulting toolkit and experience on how to understand the business mindset. The Business Impacts Framework will help you discover where to find the correct targets inside your business and how to use your expertise in design, development, and delivery to create results. This webinar takes you to a “real sample” to understand the business mindset. 

Topics to cover:
  • Why is training often thought of as the “dispensable cost” department? 
  • What is the difference between the L&D mindset and business mindset? 
  • What is the The Business Impacts Framework?
  • What are business impacts and how do these areas drive your learning and training solutions?
    • Flow and speed
    • Costs and yields
    • Technology disruptions
    • Errors and returns
    • Payback, profits, and costs
    • Capital, balance sheet
    • Customers, suppliers, and shareholders
    • Materials, equipment, people, processes
  • How to estimate the business impacts of your learning and training projects?
  • What to do when your leadership has very antiquated beliefs based on century-old learning principles?
  • How to ask questions to your boss to keep a business mindset?
  • Why is it essential for your survival to have the “business impacts” mindset?
Attend the webinar and obtain Ray’s The Business Impacts Framework Worksheet. 

Below you will see the Business Impacts Framework. These are areas that your bosses’ mindsets are focused on. Where and how will your training and learning programs impact the business? Please post your insights. Thank you.
