Track 5 - Implementation

Maximising the benefits of your learning technology depends on a number of key factors. Choosing the right solution is one, but picking a partner you can depend on and work with closely is key, as well as truly understanding your goals and drivers for investment in the first place. Ultimately, what are you trying to achieve? Join this interactive session to explore first-hand experience of what works–and what doesn’t–when selecting your vendor of choice.

Augmenting Your L&D: Vendors won’t bite (if you choose wisely)

With technology evolving at warp speed and new vendors popping up every day, keeping up with the trends is a full-time job. Meanwhile, the skills gap is widening and the pressure is on L&D to close it. The reality is, learning teams are expected to deliver more and more (data analytics, a learning culture, AI…!) often with limited resources.

In this context, choosing the right partners has becmmission critical. In this session we’ll help you separate the wheat from the chaff, drawing from years of experience on corporate and provider side. Here are some of the topics we will tackle:

  • Where do I start? Dos and Don’ts
  • Beyond learning tech: What else do I need to succeed?
  • How do I decide? Questions to ask before partnering
  • Red flags to avoid
  • Now what? Proactive vendor management
