Generative AI (GenAI) is a disruptive force. Whether you embrace its potential or fear its impact, there is no question that GenAI will change how humans work.
Brandon Hall Group™ research shows that most companies believe GenAI will have a big impact on Human Capital Management (HCM), especially Learning and Development. Organizations are 57% more likely to say they will use GenAI in Learning than in any other function.
Therefore, L&D should be at the forefront of developing GenAI strategy, right? Well, so far, not so much. Only one-third of our research respondents said L&D or HR as a whole is actively involved in shaping GenAI strategy.
That’s why NovoEd and Brandon Hall Group™ are teaming up for a virtual roundtable discussion on Jan. 24 to discuss how to mobilize Learning teams to take the lead in GenAI. Joining moderator Claude Werder, Senior VP and Principal Analyst at Brandon Hall Group™, as panelists are:
- Meredith DeMalia, Vice President, Learning and Development for US and Canada Consumer Operations, Marriott International
- Todd Moran, Chief Learning Strategist at NovoEd
- Chantelle Nash, Director of Digital HR Experience at Baker Hughes
- Jacob Nikolau, Head of Product Marketing at NovoEd
- Maryann Thomas, Learning Ecosystem Leader of 3M
The discussion will focus on:
- The growing need for L&D to work and lead cross-functionally.
- What L&D professionals can do to be more effective cross-functional leaders.
- How GenAI can be harnessed to increase the reach and impact of corporate Learning teams.
We also want to hear from you. We want to understand how L&D organizations around the globe are approaching GenAI. We will get your input through polls throughout the discussion and capture your questions, experiences and opinions throughout the session.
The disruption caused by the rapid evolution of Generative AI presents both a challenge and an opportunity to L&D teams.
- The challenge: L&D is often downstream of change management strategy, limiting its ability to make an impact.
- The opportunity: This technological change is increasing the need for upskilling and reskilling.
L&D will need to adjust to the new dynamics. For example, the role of instructional designers and other Learning professionals is likely to be transformed by GenAI, our research shows. To remain relevant, instructional designers must possess a heightened level of expertise. They must build effective learning by leveraging generative AI to optimize design and development and enhance the overall learning experience.
Learning organizations took a wait-and-see attitude when GenAI started grabbing global attention. In a Brandon Hall Group™ survey in the first quarter of 2023, 23% of respondents said GenAI would positively impact learning. By the fourth quarter, that percentage had risen to 73%.
The question now is how L&D can best position itself for success. Our panel will weigh in and we want your ideas, too. Join us for what promises to be a compelling discussion! You can register here.
