Doing more with less isn’t a new concept. It’s almost as old as business itself. Recently, though, it’s again becoming an increasingly important tenet of learning leaders. The reality of the hybrid workforce and digital-first learning approaches brings in its wake the cry for greater efficiency and cost control.
With the RTO (Return to Office) wave in full force and the associated return of live, instructor-led training and the transition from the fully digital, asynchronous approach, age-old training resource management challenges have also returned to top of mind. Add to that the end of the pandemic crisis response. While there is still a portion of training happening virtually, many companies appear to be returning to instructor-led training (ILT) in force. In fact, Brandon Hall Group’s study on the state of learning practices reveals that 70% of all training is being delivered in an instructor-led modality (whether in person or virtual).
With the return of instructor-led training as the preferred modality, comes all the associated management needs and challenges. Do I have the right trainer available when I need them? Do I have all the other resources I need to implement the training? Do I (or will I) have all of the data I need to tell the story and ensure effective utilization and return?
Training Resource Management System provider Training Orchestra, a Brandon Hall Group Gold Preferred Provider, will be joining us on March 9th at 1 pm Eastern to show learning teams how creating an effective training operations strategy can help them gain efficiency and maximize the management of limited resources. Many companies still resort to spreadsheet management for this critical function. Our research shows that more than 55% of learning organizations are managed de-centrally or in a hybrid model and organizations are anticipating reductions in both learning budget and dedicated learning headcount. This means there is more to manage with fewer people to manage it. And yet, the training still has to take place.
Stephan Pineau, CEO, and Peter Olyarchuk, Director at Training Orchestra, will join Matt Pittman, Principal, HCM Analyst with Brandon Hall Group, in a conversation about how modernizing and automating the management of training resources helps teams to train more with less.
In this session, we’ll attempt to answer questions like:
- What is Training Operations and Why Should I Care?
- What are the key things to think about in building a Training Operations strategy?
- Beyond your LMS — how do you create a modern, empowered, end-to-end Operations environment for training?
- How does an optimized Training Operations process add value and create success?
We look forward to having you join us on this webinar at 1 pm ET on Thursday, March 9th. If that time (1 pm ET) does not work for your calendar, still register because we will send you the recording and slides shortly after the event is over!
