From 2008 to 2011 High-Impact Learning Organizations (HILOs) – training functions that outperform at adding significant value to their businesses – had three times higher profit growth than non-HILO organizations*. These 'high-impact' training functions are not just outperforming than the rest, they’re different. They excel in a variety of measurable dimensions, and they have raised their focus to a higher level: Organizational Capability Development. They are built to address the capability requirements of critical positions, leadership development at many levels of the organization, change, technology, deep data analysis, and greater involvement in the end-to-end elements of talent management.
In this session, Bob Danna, Director, Deloitte Consulting LLP, will share important findings from Bersin by Deloitte’s latest High Impact Learning Organization study, including Bersin’s new High-Impact Learning Organization Maturity Model. He will share real-world success stories and guidance for applying the findings to your organization, including:
- The important dimensions of High-Impact Learning Organizations
- Benchmarks from Global 2000 companies, including selected findings from the 2013 Corporate Training Factbook
- Assessing your organization against the High-Impact Learning Organization Maturity Model
- Strategies for increase maturity
- Staying agile in an unpredictable, changing future
