Good Versus Evil—Is There a Winner in Training Versus Learning
Collapse Expand


Are you still using the same workflow processes and software techniques from 5 or even 10 years ago? We work in a fast-paced technical world where the use of advanced software techniques and processes can be the difference between winning and losing a project. What is your company doing to stay current with technology beyond purchasing the software? Do you have a training/learning strategy in place? And if so, is it embraced by the department leads, project managers, and end users, and, most importantly, is it endorsed by upper management? In this session we will discuss learning trends and how you can develop a training/learning strategy that will reap benefits for both management and staff. We will discuss how internal user groups and communities of practice can play important roles in communicating and deploying a training/learning program. Examples will be from a multioffice company with global office locations.
