When properly designed, delivered, and evaluated, digital learning initiatives can change a company’s corporate culture, improve employee engagement, and increase retention. This white paper explores strategies leaders can use to make digital learning initiatives more effective within their organizations.
So what is a digital learning initiative? Any learning initiative that leverages technology to reach people in different places at different times.
Assessing the development needs of the organization and taking time to get senior management’s support provides a firm foundation to build the initiative.
Often a company will license a large digital learning library, using the theory that there is “something for everyone.” But such a broad initiative often lacks focus and strategy. One year later, the utilization rate for is often below 10%.
When our designers work with clients, we don’t recommend purchasing our entire library for an entire population. We carefully assess a client’s unique needs and recommend content appropriate for the audience.
As with any important learning initiative, a leadership-focused digital learning initiative begins with a clear strategy and well-planned tactics. Our suggestions are informed by our work, which draws on more than 40 years of experience in researching leadership and developing leaders in diverse industries across the world.
Ensure sustained success by connecting learners with each other and with mentors, and by providing effective evaluation to confirm that development is progressing and that there is a measurable return on investment. When used strategically, technology offers talent leaders another useful item for their leadership development toolkits.
