High impact delivery: designed for the business, built on trust: Carla Quiring, Global Head of T&D Operations and Technology Solutions at AstraZeneca, Elise Lockyer, Chief People Officer at Sonovate and Anna Johnston, Group Head of Learning & Careers at Sky, will host a conference session for L&D practitioners on systems implementation at Learning Technologies 2024 this April in London.

Every learning systems implementation stands or falls on the reactions of the people it affects. That reaction will be influenced by many factors, but the most important long-term influences are whether the system helps people do their jobs better, and whether it is trusted. Join this session to learn how to build for the business and establish trust in L&D along the way.

Without learning systems, L&D is little more than a cottage industry, but implementing them well takes a lot more than buying the technology and switching it on. In this session we explore how setting systems up right (and integrating them, and maintaining them, too) is essential to allow L&D to do its job well. And implementation is not a neutral outcome, either. Done badly it adds to L&D’s considerable administrative overheads.

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “We’ll look at the practical steps for successful system implementation, touching on understanding typical use cases to developing blueprints for personalised learning as well as partnering with business units to understand their requirements. Discover how tailored approaches like leadership labs, cohort-based learning and social learning are integrated effectively into organisations’ L&D systems.” 

Talking points/takeaways:

  • Practical steps for effective system implementation 
  • Making your case for technology
  • Building relationships and maintaining trust 
  • Scaling your L&D function using technology
  • Integrating social learning effectively

High impact delivery: designed for the business, built on trust takes place on day two, 18 April at 13:55.
