Session Focus: Creating a New L&D for the New Workplace
Case Study: 4 Ps Exercise-A simple tool to think about how L&D needs to change (Source: Prosci change management methodology)

Using a simple tool to think about how L&D needs to change helps us think through which specific business results I need to impact, what behaviors, tools, processes, etc. need to change, and who needs to change (ex. staff, stakeholders, etc.). After Teresa explores, 4 Ps Exercise, a simple technique used to tie changes that need to be made to business results, Nick & Tim will facilitate a robust discussion covering:

  1. How have expected business results at your organization changed since March 2020 and how have the impacted L&D?
  2. What are the business adjustments or governmental policy changes we foresee likely happening over the coming 6-12 months?
  3. How can we start thinking proactively on how L&D could respond to support these adjustments?

If this is one of your first ELE Learning Circles for this cohort, at one of the early sessions Amy Wittig shared how her organization was creating strategies for (COVID-19) three troughs. They are How to respond, Return to Workplace & Embrace the New Normal.  We are now shifting our focus from how should we respond to be more proactive with reimagining L&D for the new normal.

ELE’s Learning Circle will be ideating Retooling Talent Development for the New Normal.
