Running successful multi-national learning technology implementations: Steve Renz, Global Director of Learning and Development at BNI and Ryan Steer, Group Director Digital People Solutions at BUPA, will host a conference session for L&D practitioners on systems implementation at Learning Technologies 2024 this April in London.

Looking to navigate the complexities of large-scale learning technology implementation? Here we address how challenges multiply when you’re working across differing cultural and business landscapes as well as sprawling IT infrastructures. The start at localization and go well beyond it. Join us for tips on making your multi-national implementation fly.

Managing multi-national learning technology implementation is more complex than it might seem at first. Delivering to two countries is more than twice as complex as delivering to a single country because of the factors involved: multiple languages, cultures, practices, data sets, systems…, each needing to be tackled and then maintained. Deployments can become vastly more complex with each additional country.

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “Join us to learn about the challenges of language diversity and the need for customised training approaches to suit different business models and regional needs. How do you balance the need for different content sources with the need for consistent quality? Is there a single best approach, or does the choice of a centralised, de-centralised or federated model depend on circumstances? Join us to discuss all of this and more.” 

Talking points/takeaways:

  • Localization and translation: creating and maintaining content
  • Ensuring consistent training quality globally 
  • Creating a single source of reliable data from different systems
  • Comparing centralised and federated delivery
  • Ensuring support for deskless workers

Running successful multi-national learning technology implementations takes place on day two, 18 April at 15:50.

The full programme is available on the event website Learning Technologies 2024 Conference, along with conference pass sales: Learning Technologies 2024 Conference Conference Passes.

Speakers include: Stella Lee, Dani Johnson, Chara Balasubramaniam, Brandon Carson, Hadiya Nuriddin, Markus Bernhardt; just a few of the 90+ speakers on the programme.
